SPU Applicants

In the Nursing Program, we believe the formation of Christian character, as evidenced by the heart, mind, and action, is a cornerstone of your education and leads to qualities seen in exceptional nurses.

Nursing Program prerequisites are typically completed during the first two years, along with core University requirements. 


SPU students are those that are currently enrolled at SPU or have been enrolled at SPU within the past four quarters.

Minimum of 2.85 cumulative GPA in the prerequisite coursework is required with no single course grade less than 2.0.

In addition, there can be no more than two (2) repeats of any prerequisite courses due to a grade below 2.0. 
Meeting the minimum criteria for consideration of admission neither implies nor guarantees admission to the program.
