Suggested Prenursing curriculum sequence .

Special considerations:
*These courses also serve as prerequisites to the nursing program and must be passed with a "C" or higher prior to admission to the Level I nursing courses.

****MATH 1110  must be passed with a "B" or higher prior to admission to the Level I nursing courses.

Many prenursing students take courses during the summer to lighten the regular semester course load.  Students should see the director of admissions for information about summer courses. All non-nursing course transfer credit is approved through the registrar's office; prior approval is required.

**Elect two courses in the Global Perspectives menu of the Liberal Arts Program .  Students considering international mission work could take a foreign language to fulfill the Global Perspectives requirement.

NURS 4130  counts as a Bible or Global Perspectives requirement, but not both. Students are strongly encouraged to take NURS 4130  if they are planning to participate in an international health care mission trip.  NURS 3440 and NURS 4510 may be required for those doing international mission work.  ***NURS 4130  does not count as a textual Bible course.  BDOC 3040  is strongly recommended for the nursing degree.

NURS 3210 and NURS 3620 are to be taken the first semester following admission.  NURS 3540 is to be taken the second semester after admission. NURS 4120 is planned for the first semester of Level II but may be taken the second semester of Level I with dean's approval.  NURS 4620 is taken the semester of graduation.

Curriculum Plan:


The nursing faculty support the liberal arts and Bible-based course offerings at Harding and the many opportunities available for student learning experiences. The following are recommended in planning a program of study:      

  1. In the Carr College of Nursing, Level I is the first two semesters of study after admission. Level II is the last two semesters of study within the Carr College of Nursing.
  2. Though the Level I and Level II years may be predominately nursing courses, students are encouraged to participate fully in campus activities.
  3. NURS 3670  is available as a cooperative education clinical experience. See the director of admissions or a faculty for details.

Note(s):


Many prenursing students take courses during the summer to lighten the regular semester course load. Students should see their advisers for information about summer courses.

The following legend of symbols relates to the various courses previously listed:

*Students considering international mission work take a foreign language to partially fulfill the Global Perspectives requirement. Take the language courses during the first two freshman semesters, and take the history course during one of the semesters marked Global Perspectives. This sequence is recommended to complete the degree in four years.
**University policy states that all full-time students must enroll in a Bible class each semester.
***Elect two courses from the Global Perspectives menu of the Liberal Arts Program . NURS 4130  is strongly recommended for those interested in health care missions. NURS 3440  and NURS 4510  may be required for those doing international mission work.
+NURS 4130  (Health Care Missions) will count as a Bible class the semester it is taken, and it will also serve as Global Perspectives credit. NURS 4130  does not count as a textual Bible class.
