Pre-Nursing Major

Students wishing to pursue a BSN degree will be classified as a Pre-Nursing major until admitted into the upper-division Nursing program. The Nursing program prepares its students to work in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, public health, home health agencies, hospice, and long-term facilities. Students earning a Bachelors of Science in Nursing are prepared to take and pass the NCLEX-RN to begin working as a registered nurse. Charlotte also offers graduate degree programs such as an MSN and/or DNP to allow students to advance in their field.

In Order to Declare Pre-Nursing as a Major, You Must:

  1. Have a cumulative 3.0 GPA with no C’s in selected Pre-Nursing prerequisite courses
  2. Transfer students must have a minimum of 15 completed hours at UNC Charlotte
  3. Freshmen students must have a minimum of 30 completed hours at UNC Charlotte

Make Sure You’re on Track

It is a great idea to sit down with your academic advisor and map out your time at UNC Charlotte. Take a look at the Pre-Nursing Check Sheet/ Academic Map to see if you’re on the right track.

Progression in the Pre-Licensure Nursing program requires a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and students must meet grade requirements for admission.
