Undecided Students/Intended Nursing

Undecided students in the College of Health Sciences & Professions are advised by the Dean's Office Academic Advising staff. These advisors help students with academic planning, exploring interests and declaring a major that aligns with their professional goals.

For students placed into the ND1242 HSP Intended Nursing major code who are interested in the pre-nursing major, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree is still attainable. Skilled and experienced CHSP academic advisors have developed an Intending Nursing advising plan to adequately prepare you for the rigors of the pre-nursing major at a manageable pace. Most students on the Intended Nursing advising plan are able to successfully complete the BSN in five years.
