Available Online Prerequisite Courses

These online courses are some of the most common prerequisites for nursing and other health care degree programs. We require this coursework for entry into the University of Rochester's Accelerated Nursing Programs for Non-Nurses ).

If applying these courses toward a degree program outside of the University of Rochester, we encourage you to check with your college or university prior to registering to be sure the course credit will transfer. University of Rochester School of Nursing courses are generally transferable; however each individual school makes the final decision whether or not to accept the course. See FAQs page for details.
