Students in the Pre-Nursing emphasis earn a Biology degree and prepare for professional programs in nursing, medical technology, chiropractics, optometry and public health. Students work closely with Western’s Health Professions Advisor to build a degree path aligned with the admission requirements of their schools of choice as well as their greater professional interests.
The Pre-Nursing emphasis begins with a broad training in the life sciences, including evolution, cell theory, genetics, metabolism, and ecological components and systems. Students then tighten their focus on biological concepts related to healthcare through labs, shadowing opportunities and field experience. Low student-to-faculty ratios allow close interaction between biology majors and their professors, both in- and outside the classroom.
