Accelerated BSN Prerequisite Courses and the PREP Program
A job in nursing requires a strong aptitude in science, biology, and math. Therefore, we require our ABSN students to complete a series of general and natural science-based prerequisite courses, which can be completed 100% online through Utica College as part our Prerequisite Priority (PREP) Program.
ABSN Prerequisites Courses
Natural Science Prerequisites
|Sociology||Anatomy & Physiology I + Lab|
|Ethics||Anatomy & Physiology II + Lab|

Keep in mind, however, to be eligible for the ABSN program, you must:
- Earn a grade of “C” or better in each prerequisite course.
- Maintain a minimum 2.8 GPA in the natural science courses.
