++NU 404 must be taken prior to or concurrent with NU 201. *EN 105, *EN 106, *SO201 and *MA 210 may be taken at any time prior to graduation.
2. Most non-nursing courses may be offered in Summer I or II sessions.
The relationship of course/credit hours to clock hours is as follows:
- 1 academic hour of theory/week = 1 course credit
- 2-3 hours non-nursing course laboratory/week = 1 course credit
- 3 hours nursing clinical/laboratory experience/week = 1 course credit
