Interested in Pre-Nursing at EIU?
We want to follow up with you to make sure our program is right for you! Here are a few things you should know:
- To be eligible to apply to the traditional pre-licensure BSN program, you must be admitted to EIU as a pre-nursing student and have completed pre-nursing requirements at EIU with a grade of C or better. Students must complete BIO 1004G Practical Microbiology, BIO 2210 Anatomy & Physiology I, and NUR 1511 Pathways: Health and Human Services at EIU. The first time you can apply to the BSN program is during the spring semester of your freshman year at EIU.
- There is no direct admission to the traditional BSN program for transfer students or high school students. If you are applying to EIU as a transfer student for pre-nursing and have completed the majority of the required pre-nursing coursework prior to admission, you are not eligible to apply to the nursing program at EIU.
- If you have your RN license and you wish to enroll in our online RN to BSN program, you can find more information on that program here.
The best thing to do right now is to fill out this form with some details on where you're at in your studies. We'll follow up with you to determine if nursing at EIU is for you.
