Applicants may be in the process of completing prerequisite course(s) if the course(s) will be completed and a transcript can be produced with a C grade or higher before the first day of nursing classes.

Introductory anatomy and physiology courses will not be accepted. Integrated Anatomy and Physiology courses will be accepted if both Part 1 and Part 2 have been completed with a C or better.

  • The prerequisite courses must be taken from a regionally accredited college or university (Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, Weber State University, Salt Lake Community College, etc). We do not accept prerequisite courses taken at schools such as Provo College, Ameritech,, etc. If you have a question about your prerequisite courses and/or transcripts, please email for assistance.
