Prior to admission to Tennessee Wesleyan's nursing program, you must complete pre-requisites in the natural and social sciences and the Wesleyan Essentials core classes.

These courses can be completed on TWU's main campus in Athens, TN during your freshman and sophomore years. These classes will give you a solid foundation as you move to the next two years at the Knoxville instructional site. TWU students that complete the required courses, while maintaining a 3.25 GPA, will receive their golden ticket for admission to the nursing program.
