Pre-Nursing - Plan of Study

Pre-Nursing Plan of Study

Information accurate as of the 2024 - 2025 catalog.
For previous year's catalogs, please see the undergraduate catalog page.

Students enrolling in the Pre-Nursing curriculum will be admitted into the Associates of General Studies program for the first year.

This is an extension of the Marshall University program, which will add seats to its current programs, but will be physically located in central West Virginia, where there currently are no nursing programs available to its residents. Marshall University will administer the BSN, i.e. admissions into the program, hiring of faculty, the purchasing of the equipment, delivery of nursing curriculum, etc. in collaboration with Glenville State University. Glenville will provide 42 credit hours in course work toward the Marshall BSN. Marshall will provide facilities at the Glenville State University Campus, Glenville, West Virginia. Glenville State University offers a pre-nursing curriculum that parallels Marshall University’s curriculum. Students successfully completing this curriculum will be eligible to apply and to be considered for admission into the Marshall University Nursing Program.
