Nursing is an impacted major at SJSU. This means that all new freshmen and transfer students need to satisfy supplemental criteria. Refer to the " BS Information Packet" on this page.
Due to limited University resources and budget restrictions, STUDENTS WHO WANT TO CHANGE TO THE PRE-NURSING MAJOR should check the website after January 1st, 2013 for updated information.
