Advising Notes:

Please Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, itís designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major.

1. Admission into JMU's Nursing Program is competitive. Consult How to apply to the BSN Program on the Nursing Department web site for the requirements.
2. Please Note: Transfer students typically wait at least one year before being admitted to Nursing. Students may therefore want to consider transferring before completing a transferable associate degree, and finish their General Education and/or Nursing prerequisites at JMU.
