Pre-Nursing, Focus

Multi-talented and in demand health professionals.

Nurses are one of the most in demand health care professionals with a bevy of skills that promote health, prevent disease and help patients cope with illness. They are also hugely sought after — with demand for registered nurses expected to increase by 12% through 2028.

With a wide array of career options available in the field of nursing, students are encouraged to explore the options to determine which is the best fit for their career aspirations. You will study human anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, healthcare ethics, medical terminology and more, which fulfill general education requirements.
