Regis College Young School of Nursing has not made a determination of whether the curriculum meets educational requirements for licensure for all states and jurisdictions. A complete list with the determinations will be available in the near future.

Sample Eight-Semester Plan

For the Class of 2023

Students are expected to review and track their own progress towards completion of degree requirements. This is provided as a sample guideline — it does not reduce the importance of careful and regular discussions between a student and their academic advisor. Students must refer to the Regis College Academic Catalog and the Nursing Handbook to ensure they are familiar with all current university and nursing program policies.

Important Reminders

  • Nursing students are required to meet with their nursing advisor at least once per semester to review their individual curriculum plan.
  • Courses marked 1 are prerequisite or co-requisite courses for the undergraduate nursing major.
  • Nursing students must complete a minimum of 125 credits, maintain a 3.0 (B) cumulative GPA, achieve a 2.7 (B-) cumulative GPA in science pre/co-requisites (BI 105, 106, 108, 212, CH 105) with no grade below a C (2.0) in all pre/co-requisites, and achieve a B- (2.7) in ID 230 and all “NU” courses.
