Recommended Course Sequence

School of Nursing Mission Statement
The mission of the School of Nursing is to be Christ-centered, people-focused, student- oriented, quality-driven, and future-directed in preparing qualified persons to serve a diverse population through the holistic profession of nursing.

Nursing: Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (TBSN)
This is a cohort-based program that begins in the fall semester. Courses must be taken in the sequence in which they are listed by semester. No grade below a “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses. If you have been previously enrolled in nursing courses at another college or university resulting in a grade less than C, then you are ineligible to apply to the ABSN or TBSN tracks at Anderson University.

Degree Requirements (122 Cr. Hrs.)


Students are conditionally admitted to the major as pre-nursing students in the freshman year. This conditional admission stands until successful completion of courses through the fourth semester with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0, and a Science GPA of 3.0 *. Completion of a TEAS exam in January of the sophomore year, 4th semester, and submission of the score. Then the student may be eligible for selection to progress into the School of Nursing for completion of the major. The student must submit an intent to enroll in the School of Nursing no later than February 15th in the fourth semester. Prior to the fifth semester, the student must successfully pass a pre-nursing physical exam, must successfully submit a clear urine drug screen and negative background check, obtain any required immunizations (or provide evidence of immunizations), provide evidence of health insurance, provide evidence of professional liability insurance, and provide evidence of current American Heart BLS CPR certification.
