Students are required to select a major while preparing to apply to the BSN program and may choose from any of Southern’s Undergraduate Programs; However, it is within the B.S. Healthcare Studies degree program that students will receive advisement specifically for nursing application preparation and complete the appropriate coursework for a seamless transition into the nursing program if admitted. Students who select a different major may use the resources on this site for self-guidance.
Current students may select or change their major by completing this electronic form: https://apps.southernct.edu/owls/sop/main
Based on the information above, the pre-nursing advisement concentration will no longer be available to future students. Eligibility requirements apply to those who still have a pre-nursing concentration on their degree evaluation. See here for more details: Pre-nursing Concentration Eligibility
