The objectives of this curriculum are designed to facilitate potential nursing students’ success; the learner may discover that nursing is not a good fit for their academic aspirations.

There are options in the health sciences, as well as in fields of education, law, divinity, fine arts, business, and more. Please explore our website to get more information.

The following curriculum is a guideline for courses required in the program. Students are free to work with their assigned advisor to create the most effective course schedule to complete the prerequisites. Students must receive a “C” or higher in each class in order to use credit hours as prerequisites for the Nursing program.

Admission Requirements


The Campbell University admission requirements are necessary for acceptance and designation of a Pre-Nursing intent. The student is required to take the prerequisites for the pre-nursing program. The application for the B.S.N. portion occurs during annually in January. This process requires a competitive application for admission to the degree program. The admissions process includes meeting specific prerequisite coursework with a minimum grade of “C” in each class.

  1. The preferred minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) is a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale with the minimum for admission a 2.8.
  2.  The preferred minimum science GPA is a 2.75 on a 4.0 scale with the minimum for admission a 2.8 as well.
  3.  The admissions process may include a personal interview and each applicant will submit an essay.
  4. The admissions committee will evaluate each applicant’s academic performance, essay, special skills and abilities that enhance the nursing profession.

Applicants are notified by the B.S.N. program of an admissions decision through email and an official decision letter early in the spring for a fall start. Pre-Nursing students that do not achieve qualified status will be advised as to alternate degree options at Campbell University by their Faculty Advisor.

Admission and graduation from Campbell University does not guarantee that the student is eligible to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam.

Upper Division Transfer Credit


The Registrar’s Office is responsible for the transferring of credits from other institutions onto the Campbell University transcript.

 A transfer student must meet the core requirements and apply to the upper division, through an electronic College Application website.

The cumulative GPA from transferred coursework is considered as part of the holistic competitive application to the B.S.N. Degree Program. The admissions process includes meeting specific prerequisite coursework with a minimum grade of “C” in each class

A grade of “C” or better must have been earned in the B.S.N. course work and been completed within the previous three years.

For transfer credit of B.S.N. level courses, the official transcript and copy of the course syllabus must be submitted to the Catherine W. Wood School of Nursing for determination of course equivalency by a faculty with expertise or the B.S.N. Curriculum Committee.

Transfer credit is not granted automatically and is restricted to didactic courses with no clinical component. A letter from the Dean indicating that that the student left in good academic and professional standing is required.
