The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program at Lourdes has a competitive admission process. However, in recognition of the fact that many students can maintain a solid GPA, Lourdes is now permitting new students to be directly admitted to the Nursing Major by completing the following requirements and maintaining a 3.0 GPA prior to Nursing Program.

  • 3.25 High School Cumulative GPA
  • Demonstrate College Readiness in Math, English & Chemistry
  • Completed Application and submission of high school or preparatory school transcripts


Students without the above requirements may still pursue nursing at Lourdes University by enrolling as a Pre-Nursing Student. These students still take the same courses in the first 3 semesters at Lourdes University and apply to enter the Nursing Major in the second semester of their sophomore year.
