Students in the Pre-Nursing LLC will take several courses together each semester. This allows for study groups and a richer experience in the LLC. These courses have been selected from Texas State's general education core curriculum and they are prerequisites for advancement into upper-level nursing courses.
Fall: Biology 1330 (Functional Biology) and Math 1315 (College Algebra)
Spring: Chemistry 1341 (General Chemistry I) and Philosophy 1320 (Ethics and Society)
