    Always check the catalog for current prerequisite info for all classes.

    All schools require that students have earned their NAC (Nursing Assistant, Certified) credentials before admission into nursing school. The NAC credential is not available through CWU.

    Sometimes pairing pre-requisites for Nursing Programs in addition to completing a 4-year Bachelor Degree is perfect for a student's specific goals. Two such potential pathways are:

    Public Health BS, Pre-Nursing Specialization

    Biology BS, Molecular and Cell Biology Specialization
