What can you do with a Pre-Nursing degree?


The Pre-Nursing curriculum at Amarillo College ideally prepares graduates for successful transfer to a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program at a four-year university. Successful Pre-Nursing majors at AC, while not having practiced in the clinical setting, will have completed all of the general education courses required to enter accredited BSN programs in Texas. Additionally, some graduates of the Associates Degree in Nursing (ADN) program at Amarillo College do graduate from AC with dual degrees, including one in Pre-Nursing.
