The credits in sociology, the humanities, and the electives provide opportunities for such a curriculum. See an adviser for suggested courses.

Notes on Application to a University or College
Admissions application deadlines vary; students must meet the deadline for the university or universities to which they plan to apply for admission to transfer.
For admission to nursing as a major it is critical to note that grade point average requirements vary and admission is competitive across the several programs in Nursing. Although some nursing programs note minimum GPA requirements for nursing prerequisites and other required courses, meeting the minimum requirements does guarantee nursing admission. It is strongly urged for students to check with their transferring institution for GPA requirements.
Certain schools may have additional “university-specific” requirements that are not pre-requisites to admission to the Nursing major but will need to be completed prior to graduation or, as noted above for NU, prior to commencement of nursing courses. Contact with advisors from individual schools for institutional requirements is highly recommended since this DTA may not meet every institution-specific graduation requirement. NU, for example requires Old Testament and New Testament in the summer prior to beginning nursing classes.
Certain schools may have additional “university-specific” requirements for admission to the institution that are not pre- requisites specifically identified in the DTA requirements. UW Seattle, for example, requires 10 credits of a world language if the applicant has not completed two years of a single language in high school; PLU requires a year of a foreign language at the college level, if two years of high school foreign language has not been completed.
