Why Study Pre-Nursing at Northwest

The course selection for pre-nursing students is flexible and designed to fulfill the requirements of institutions that Northwest students plan on applying to after graduation.

Then, they transfer and complete the last two years of the traditional nursing track at the institution of their choice. Northwest students have found great success both at Northwest and nursing school!
