Preparation and Requirements
Pre-Nursing students are expected to establish a strong academic record and participate in activities that better develop their interpersonal skills, their knowledge of the nursing profession, and their leadership abilities. These types of activities often include things such as employment opportunities, nurse shadowing, volunteer experiences, organizational memberships, and community service.
There are many steps and requirements to apply to nursing school, which might include an entrance exam, personal statement, and letters of recommendation. Pay close attention to the instruction manual for the centralized application service and requirements for individual programs. Meet with a health professions advisor to make sure you’re on track.
