SUNY Oneonta


The pre-nursing option at SUNY Oneonta is exclusively an advisement program. There is no specific major for those wishing to pursue nursing as a career. Because the number of applicants to nursing schools greatly exceeds the number of openings, satisfactory completion of the pre-nursing courses does not assure acceptance by any nursing school. To help with the many challenges associated with gaining admission to nursing schools, there is an advisement program headed by the Health Professions Advisement Coordinator.

Students in this area should familiarize themselves with the requirements of those schools to which they intend to apply. While the student may choose any Liberal Arts major field, the following courses, which are minimum requirements for admission to most nursing schools, should be included: one year of chemistry, one year of human anatomy and physiology, general biology, microbiology, nutrition, composition, psychology, sociology, philosophy, mathematics, and elective courses selected by advisement.
