Pre-Nursing at KWC
About the Program
Kentucky Wesleyan College offers a two-year Pre-Nursing Program for students seeking admission to the University of Louisville's School of Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program.
In the beginning of their fourth semester at KWC, you will apply to the University of Louisville B.S.N. program housed at Owensboro Medical Health System. When you complete the OMHS program, you will be awarded a B.S.N. degree from the University of Louisville.
The two year Pre-Nursing program at KWC offers an attractive program option if you want to become a nurse, but would also like to participate in a traditional undergraduate college experience.
As a Pre-Nursing student, you can participate in KWC athletic programs, fraternities or sororities, clubs and other activities during your two years at KWC.
The KWC Pre-Nursing Program is designed to meet the academic requirements and prerequisites of the University of Louisville's first two years of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program.
KWC Pre-Nursing students take courses in Chemistry, Biology, Behavioral Sciences and Human Nutrition in addition to general education courses.
If you decide to pursue a different health profession or a totally different major, the required Pre-Nursing course work will be applied to other KWC majors.
Nursing School Preparation
Pre-Nursing students must take the required undergraduate courses (see "Suggested Curriculum" below) to be considered for admission to the University of Louisville Nursing Program. You must attain a minimum GPA of 2.8 to be considered for admission.
Entering Pre-Nursing students are eligible for financial aid and academic scholarships, as are all four-year KWC students.
