Students must have a minimum verbal SAT score of a 500 or 21 ACT Composite score.
Since admission to the Nursing program at the junior level is very competitive, freshmen majoring in pre-nursing must work hard to maintain solid grades. Students who participate in the Nursing LC have an advantage in terms of admission to the Nursing program, as they learn about what it takes to be a successful nursing student during the LC. The SLS course is taught by a College of Nursing staff member who can answer your questions about requirements, the application process and nursing as a career. As grades are very important in the admission process for the nursing program, students in the LC can work with other pre-nursing students to excel in their courses.
Nursing LC students typically register for the following courses for the fall semester:
- English Composition I: ENC 1101 or English Composition II: ENC 1102 (3 credits)
- Learning Strategies & Human Development: SLS 1503 (2 credits)
- Learning Community Experience: SLS 1412 (0 credit)
- Introduction to Sociology: SYG 1000 (3 credits)
- Anatomy and Physiology I: BSC 2085 (3 credits with 1 credit Lab)
- MATH Course - Math for Liberal Arts I or College Algebra. This will be based on your score on the ALEKS Math Placement Test (www.fau.edu/mathplacement).
