Earning a nursing degree requires a lot of hard work and dedication, but the rewards are great. Although your program of study may vary by the number of credits you bring in from high school AP or concurrent enrollment courses, most pre-nursing majors have a well-defined course schedule that involves a good deal of math and science. Taking as many math and science classes as you can in high school will help prepare you for your pre-nursing curriculum. Unlike most degree programs at FHSU, nursing majors must apply directly to the Department of Nursing for admission, typically in the spring of sophomore year. However, when you first enroll at FHSU (or if you change majors), you can designate “pre-nursing” as your major, which guarantees you will be assigned a faculty advisor within the nursing department, who will help you enroll in the pre-requisite courses you need and guide you along the admissions process.
