The Certificate in Pre-Nursing Qualifications (CPNQ) prepares students to enter professional nursing programs, the graduates of which sit for a national registered nurse (RN) exam. This certificate includes General Education Requirements (GER) in communication, computation and human relations. The listed courses provide preparation for successful application to most nursing programs.

This certificate exceeds the minimum requirements for the UAA/UAS Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) in Nursing program. Further, it includes most of the general preparation course requirements for the UAA Bachelor of Science (BS) in Nursing program. Completion of this certificate is not a guarantee of admission into any particular nursing program.

Next Steps

The Pre-Nursing Qualifications Certificate requires completion of English S111 and Math S105.

Placement test scores determine where students start in Math and English courses.

We recommend you take your placement tests in advance to assess your abilities. Knowing your English and Math skill levels is an important part of selecting the right courses for your choice of study.

For detailed information on specific requirements for this program, please refer to the most current UAS academic catalog.
