Pre Nursing

Congratulations on your interest in nursing! As a pre-nursing student, you are receiving the foundation for your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and ultimately for your nursing career! As you continue your pre-nursing journey please visit to familiarize yourself with the admission requirements of the BSN program.

Seek Support!
Continue to seek the wonderful support of your advisors at the Center for Student Success. Please also visit your nursing faculty academic advisor at the School of Nursing
(SON). If you do not know who your nursing faculty academic advisor is, please visit, and log into BucsConnect or physically visit the SON.

Start Networking!
Pre-nursing students are now eligible to sign up for the Student Nurses Association (SNA)!  Join today to build your resume, engage in fun healthcare activities and begin networking with existing nursing students who can provide peer-mentorship and support as you complete your preparation phase for entry to the nursing program. Also, the SON launched the University of the Virgin Island’s chapter
of the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) in August of 2019, bringing many valuable engagement opportunities to all SNA members interested in the NSNA. Please contact (340) 693-1295 today for more information on how to and the benefits of becoming a member and to begin connecting with nursing students at state and local levels!
