Pre-Nursing


Wayland’s pre-professional programs offer students advancements in their choice of undergraduate degree programs

Professional-level nursing programs leading to RN certification are three calendar years in duration, including approximately one year of pre-professional course work. Students with interests in nursing as a career may take their preparatory course work at Wayland and then transfer to a school of nursing for two years of clinical studies. Bachelor of Science in Nursing students will take degree core courses in addition to those suggested for the diploma program. Clinical studies will be undertaken at the university granting the Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Approximately 34 hours of course work is required for admission to a Diploma Nursing Program in Texas.
