Pre-Nursing student


I am an upcoming pre-nursing student and I wanted to know if any of you all know any good minors for a pre-nursing student, any good minors that would be helpful in nursing school. Please reply.

Just through my prerequisite coursework I met all the requirements for a minor in human biology.

If you want a minor that makes you more employable , I'd suggest either Psych or Informatics.

I urge you to talk to your advisor in order to obtain a clearer picture. Nursing is a program rather than an academic "major". The demanding (cumulative) curriculum doesn't really lend itself to much extraneous coursework except for the occasional elective. Of course you can opt to take more courses in order to have enough to qualify for a minor, but this may put you into excessive situation in terms of total hours - which may complicate your financial aid.

When it comes to obtaining employment as a newly licensed nurse - it is unlikely that any additional non-nursing coursework will make a difference. Entry-level nursing jobs are focused on patient care; the scope of the job won't include any non-clinical responsibilities.
