3+2 Nursing Program with Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve University Graduate Entry Nursing Program

Biology majors interested in nursing as a career may choose to enter a cooperative program in pre-nursing/nursing and earn the Bachelor of Science from John Carroll University and the Master of Nursing from the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University.

Students in this program normally attend John Carroll for three academic years and complete all University core requirements and the following pre-requisite courses: CH 141-144, CH 221-224, MT 135, MT 228, BL 155-160, BL 213, BL 230/230L, BL 231/231L, BL 310/310L, EPA 299, PS 175, and one organism-to-biosphere course.

Two upper-level electives in the first year at Case Western Reserve University complete the major requirements: NUMN 402 and NUMN 405. After successful completion of one year of the Graduate Entry Program at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, the student will be awarded the Bachelor of Science with a biology major by John Carroll University.

To be eligible for this program, students must complete at least 60 credit hours at John Carroll, have a minimum of 3.00 grade point average, apply in writing to the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences by the end of the first semester of the junior year, and be accepted by the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing in the usual manner.

Students planning to follow this course of study should contact the director of the Pre-Health Professions Program during the first semester of their sophomore year.
