Quality classroom experiences

Pre-nursing courses on the BGSU campus prepare students to apply for admission into the nursing clinical courses. Admission into the clinical courses is competitive based on cumulative college GPA. BGSU will offer 40 seats each term. When admitted, students will complete their clinical coursework at Mercy College with their five-semester clinical program.

At BGSU, we offer a direct admission opportunity to our nursing program based on a holistic review of GPA and test scores.
