This is a suggested course plan. It is highly recommended that you meet regularly with your academic advisor to determine your course selection and progress toward graduation.
Students who transfer to UNC under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) have all lower-level General Education requirements completed, but must complete these requirements through transfer or UNC coursework: Global Language, Research and Discovery, Lifetime Fitness, Communication Beyond Carolina, Campus Life Experience, and, where applicable, Supplemental General Education. Students who do not transfer in under the CAA should work closely with their advisor to determine which requirements apply to them for the IDEAs in Action General Education curriculum.
This catalog also includes a complete list of requirements for the Nursing, B.S.N. degree.

Required in the major.
Minors at UNC are typically comprised of five courses, totaling 15 credit hours. The remaining course to complete a minor may overlap with a major requirement, be completed at the NCCC and transferred, be taken over the summer, or be taken in an earlier term. Students are encouraged to work closely with their advisor to plan the course sequence for a minor if they choose to complete one.
Students will need to leverage these elective or minor courses to fulfill upper-level General Education requirements not completed as part of the major: Research & Discovery and Communication Beyond Carolina.
A total of 3 hours of NURS elective is required. This may be a single course, or multiple NURS courses that total at least 3 hours. NURS electives may be taken in any semester.
