Welcome to Madonna University's Pre-Nursing program. Our undergraduate Nursing program has earned a reputation for excellence and our graduates are in high demand. Before you can be admitted to our Nursing program, you must first be accepted into Pre-Nursing. You will find all the admissions requirements and additional information about the College of Nursing and Health as you navigate these pages.

As your Pre-Nursing admissions officer, I will guide you through the admissions process. Whether you are transferring to Madonna or coming directly from high school, I will walk you through the necessary steps to becoming a Madonna University student. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Lauren Stemberger
Admissions Officer, Pre-Nursing
As an Academic Adviser, one of my duties is to meet with Pre-Nursing students and advise them on how to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with a diverse student population from all walks of life. Not only do I meet with traditional students coming directly from high school, but I also advise non-traditional students who lead busy lives raising families, students who are making a career change, and students who transfer from other colleges or universities. The one thing they all have in common is their desire to become a nurse.

Nursing is a great profession to pursue and here at Madonna we are proud of the education, caring and leadership skills and that our students receive. You will find Madonna alumni nurses employed not only throughout the state of Michigan, but throughout the country and the United States Armed Services. So if you are seriously considering nursing as a career please come to one of the scheduled Campus Visit Events held during the school year or you may arrange a private campus visit at your convenience. We would love to meet with you and discuss the nursing major in detail.

Best wishes,
Linda Smith
Nursing In-Take Advisor 

The mission of the Madonna Pre-Nursing program is to prepare students and nurses to pursue our bachelor's program and assume a position of leadership in the nursing profession. All incoming first-year, transfer, and post-degree students are first considered for pre-nursing admission based on the following criteria:

First-year students (from high school):
• High school GPA of 3.0 or higher
• ACT composite score of 20 or higher
• Grades of C (2.0) or higher in high school algebra, biology and chemistry*

Transfer Students (from other colleges and universities)
• Recalculated GPA of 3.0 or higher (recalculated GPA based on core classes)
• Grade of C (2.0) or higher in algebra, biology and chemistry*

*Students who have more than one grade below C (2.0) in equivalent courses within seven years of application will not be accepted (see Academic Excellence Policy PDF). 

Students interested in Nursing but not meeting the Pre-Nursing admission requirements may be considered for admission into other academic programs or on an individual basis.
