Pre-Nursing Undeclared Students

As a pre-nursing major, you are considered an undeclared student interested in nursing. Review the links below and consider your pathway into healthcare and or any other major that supports healthcare. Majors like Biology, and Psychology as well as Sociology, offer opportunities for students to gain a career in healthcare with a different approach based on your degree, skills and your medical experiences. Also review volunteer programming at local healthcare facilities and gather hours early so you can start building key experiences/hours, along with skills.

Have specific questions regarding nursing and healthcare? Ask professional healthcare representatives about your interests and career goals while volunteering.
