Prenursing

Students interested in pursuing a career in nursing, a liberal arts education is a wonderful way to begin. For those interested in human movement, Kinesiology would be a great choice of major, while Biology is a good choice for students desiring a broader experience. Many Gordon students have gone on to nursing from both of these majors. Of course social work and psychology are also very good choices for future nurses, just be sure to get the appropriate pre-requisites done before applying. See below.  -CS
