Senior (84 or more semester hours) 1 semester

Students classified as ADP (Accelerated Degree Program) and students enrolled in online degree programs are exempt from chapel requirements.



+Successful completion of the nursing curriculum indicates the student has content mastery related to nutrition and well-being across the life-span and signifies fulfillment of core requirements for one physical education course with emphasis in nutrition.

**Credit available to RNs by validation.

***Nursing students often have clinical experiences that occur during the time scheduled for Chapel.  Although it is sometimes possible for students to attend Chapel during their first year of nursing courses, students in their last year of clinical courses are unable to attend Chapel due to these clinical experiences.  Therefore, every attempt should be made to complete Chapel requirements prior to admission to the nursing major.


Sufficient elective hours must be taken to meet the minimum hour requirement for graduation in this program.  Electives should be chosen in consultation with advisor.
