Information for prospective or current students:
Prospective undergraduate students are encouraged to submit the prerequisite transcript evaluation form below to request a single course prerequisite evaluation (for example, Composition II) or a full prerequisite evaluation (see prerequisite coursework below.)
Prerequisite course completion is required prior to starting the core nursing courses. In the traditional four-year plan, nursing prerequisites take four semesters (year 1 and year 2) to complete.

Anatomy, physiology, chemistry and microbiology courses expire after 10 years. Decker requires comprehensive examinations in expired prerequisite subject areas or a repeat of coursework to demonstrate proficiency.
All courses must be taken for at least three credits. It is expected that chemistry, anatomy and physiology include a laboratory component.
Candidates are encouraged to contact the Decker Division of Advising and Academic Excellence with questions regarding transfer courses. Required prerequisites may be taken in person or online at any accredited college or university.
