Students interested in pursuing a degree in nursing after Centre should expect to take courses in biology, mathematics, psychology, and other disciplines. In addition, Centre offers internships with local medical facilities and other health-related environments.
Nursing jobs are abundant nationwide in a wide range of settings, with many opportunities for growth. Centre provides guidance in applying to nursing programs around the country, including the second degree and accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) programs and accelerated Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) programs. However, Centre does not offer the B.S.N. degree.
Centre students have been admitted to second degree/accelerated B.S.N. and accelerated M.S.N. programs around the country. Centre College has a partnership with Vanderbilt University for students who apply to Vanderbilt’s accelerated M.S.N. program. The 4-2 partnership ensures that applications from Centre students receive a complete review and that Centre applicants will be invited for an interview.
Pre-nursing students should consult with faculty advisor Professor Peggy Richey.
