Curriculum Requirements Entry Level Nursing

We recommend if your science and/or math knowledge is outdated (grades ≥ 5 years old) you enroll in the KVCC science/math course prerequisite, for either grade or audit.

Transcripts


Official college transcripts and/or high school transcripts must be sent to the KVCC Record’s Office if you are planning to use either of these documents to meet program pre-requisites requirements. You will meet our high school or college pre-requisite course work requirement(s) if you have completed the course with a grade of C (2.0) or better. If you have not, you can still meet our pre-requisites by successfully completing the appropriate KVCC courses with a grade of 2.0 or higher.
