Academic Program Model

Pre-Nursing (AA.PNUR)

The following courses are recommended for Pre-Nursing. This major prepares students to transfer directly to an institution offering a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN). Thus, this major differs from the AAS.ADN or CRT.PN majors. Students who plan to first complete the nursing program at Lake Land College, and are seeking admission to the Lake Land College Associate Degree in Nursing (RN) or Certificate in Practical Nursing (PN), should refer to the AAS.ADN or CRT.PN sections of the catalog.

This program follows Math Pathway #1. Math requirements for a specific major may vary from one institution to another. Please consult with an academic counselor or academic advisor to confirm the pathway that is applicable to your major and transfer institution.
