Hi! I am applying for the Traditional BSN Fall 2021 program at University of North Florida, Jacksonville University, and University of Florida. Each school states Human Nutrition is a pre-req but it does not specify which one. 

My choices of Nutrition classes to take are: 

1001 Basic Personal Nutrition (which I should probably retake since I got a C in it years ago) 

1201 Science of Nutrition 

2015 Diet Therapy for Hlth Care Pro

2202 Essen Nutrition w/ Diet Therapy 


Does it matter which one I take? Do they all fit the Human Nutrition requirement? 

Thank you!

Per UNF'swebsite:

HUN2201 Basic Prin Human Nutrition (3 Credits)

HUNX201, NURX192 or any Human Nutrition course may be substituted for HUN 2201.

Per UNF's catalog: https://www.unf.edu/catalog/courses.aspx

HUN2201: Basic Principles of Human Nutrition
Description: HUN 2201, Basic Principles of Nutrition, is an introductory course in food and nutrition science relative to the health and well-being of the individual and the community...


For University of Florida, it appears they want HUN 2201 for their nursing program:


Their catalog states:

HUN 2201 Fundamentals of Human Nutrition

Credits: 3; Prereq: BSC 2007 or BSC 2005 or BSC 2010 or CHM 1025 or CHM 2045 or APK 2100C or APK 2105C or CHM 1030.

The properties, functions, requirements, interrelationships and metabolism of nutrients. 

They most likely want the most basic nutrition class. Look at your college catalog and see which nutrition is close in description.
