Nursing Major in ASU

<p>I want to know your SAT1/ACT, SAT2, GPA and EC to get in Nursing Major in ASU.</p>

<p>Do you understand that it isn't a direct entry program into the clinical nursing courses? It depends on your grades in the prerequisite courses and your ranking against other students who have also completed the prereqs. Their FAQ says that several students with college gpas below 3.3 in those prereqs did not get space in the nursing upper division program.</p>

<p>The good news is that you can take the prereq courses at ASU as long as you're eligible for admission there -- no different than anyone else applying for general admission to ASU. Your performance in those prerequisite classes determines your admission to the upper division program. High school extracurricular activities, SAT or SATII scores, and high school gpa aren't used.</p>

<p>so there is only general admission. no direct admission for a high school graduates to nursing program?</p>

<p>You're not going to get direct admission into the nursing program, you apply to the program after your first two years at the college level.</p>

<p>I'm not completely sure on how it works with nursing at ASU specifically, but usually you're admitted into a "pre-nursing" program, which is your 'major' while you're a freshman and sophomore. Usually your first two years all you do is your basic college classes and general education credits anyway.
During your sophomore year you apply to the nursing school and they admit you based on your college record... at that point you will no longer be associated by your high school performance.</p>

<p>I see this site:
Educational</a> Pathways for Professional Nursing | ASU College of Nursing and Health Innovation
I did not find "pre nursing" program.
Do you know what courses are taken in pre-nursing?
Or could you navigate me in ASU website? Thank you very much!</p>

<p>You need at least a 3.25 GPA in your first 2 years, and that isn't a guarantee of admission.</p>
