Tips for Pre-Nursing Students
If you are considering a degree in nursing, declare Pre-Nursing as your major. If you do not enroll as a Pre-nursing major, then you must complete at least 30 units and have a 3.0 GPA before changing to a Pre-nursing major. The Nursing major only applies to those students who have been accepted into the School of Nursing program.
If you are interested in applying to other schools of nursing, visit the California BRN Web site for addresses. This Web site is linked to all nursing programs in California. We recommend that you have a back-up plan (other school or major), in case you are not admitted to Chico’s nursing program. Only 1 of every 4-5 applicants is currently being admitted.
