Prerequisites

After completion of high school or obtaining a General Educational Development (GED) certificate, eight specific prerequisite college courses must be completed from a Regionally Accredited College or University (National Accreditation is not accepted without approval) before beginning training at Covenant School of Nursing.

Prerequisite courses must be from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum grade of "C". To qualify to apply, you must have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher in the required prerequisite courses. The most recent prerequisite grade will be used to calculate the prerequisite GPA. CLEP credit is accepted in English I, English II, Chemistry, and Human Growth and Development only and has to be on the official transcript. Dual Credit, AP, or CLEP is accepted for the applicable courses if the grade meets school requirements. Please make sure that all Dual Credit, AP or CLEP credit is on the official transcript. If you have questions in regards to a prerequisite course that you have taken please contact our office. The Admissions and Recruitment offices are available by appointment to applicants for academic guidance during the pre-nursing phase of completing these required courses.
