The Bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science is a four-year commitment for the traditional student. Students will complete their UCI general education requirements and basic science prerequisites in year-one and year-two before advancing to upper division nursing science courses in their junior and senior years.

Transfer students will matriculate beginning their junior year. UCI Undergraduate students who wish to change their major into Nursing can apply during the fall quarter of their second or third year.

The nursing science curriculum provides education in theory and research-based clinical practice that focuses on critical thinking, human caring, and clinical knowledge. Interdisciplinary sciences are also weaved into the curriculum so that our graduates can address the span of health care needs. Most importantly, our program prepares our graduates for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN).
