Notes about coursework:
We strongly recommend you have all common core coursework
completed prior to beginning your NUR courses. Because clinical schedules
will vary each semester based on availability, it could be very difficult
to arrange traditional courses around clinical times.
There are no time restrictions on the prerequisite coursework. Any course
with a letter grade of C or below must be retaken to count. You may
only attempt to retake a prerequisite course one time.
Applicants can make application to the program if there are coursework
deficiencies. However, to be admissible, applicants must be in progress
or have a plan in place to complete the coursework deficiencies by the
program's start date in August. There are no substitutions or exceptions
for required coursework and applicants must receive a letter grade in
To benefit the applicant upon matriculation and to make an application
more competitive, if you are a transfer student, it is highly recommended
coursework be taken at a four-year regionally accredited college or
university, or at a community college through a college
transfer program. Typically, community college coursework for upper-level
biology and chemistry requirements will not transfer
into a four year institution, and specifically at MU. Therefore, it
is strongly recommended coursework such as A&P and Microbiology
be taken at a four institution to ensure the course is being taken at
the appropriate level.
Online courses in math, psychology, and medical terminology have been
accepted, but online courses for biology and chemistry requirements
are highly discouraged.
- Cumulative GPA of 2.8 or higher on a 4.0 scale. If you are a transfer
student, "cumulative" means we will look at all college level
courses taken, not just your MU courses.
- A composite score of proficient (58.7) or higher on the TEAS V examination.
