Pre-Nursing

Mills’ two-year Pre-Nursing Program consists of core curriculum and basic science courses that prepare students for nursing school. Our program provides a strong foundation in the natural and social sciences, while fostering exploration of the fine arts and letters. Every student who successfully completes the two-year course work at Mills will earn a certificate in pre-nursing and will be well prepared to pursue professional training in nursing school towards a bachelor of science degree in nursing (BSN).

Guaranteed admission to Boston’s Simmons College—a Mills partnering nursing school—is available to Mills pre-nursing certificate graduates who:

  • complete their academic work with a minimum 3.0 overall GPA and a minimum 3.0 science GPA in certificate course work, and
  • who have attained an 80% score, or higher, on the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).

For information about our graduation rates, the median debt of students who completed the program and other important information, please refer to the Federal Gainful Employment Disclosure Statement.

Mills College’s innovative Bachelor’s-to-Master’s Accelerated Degree Programs allow you to earn a master’s degree in one additional year of study. Combining a master’s degree with a liberal arts undergraduate education prepares you for career success and increased options upon graduation.
