Graduation Policies and Requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree requires the student must achieve:

  • A 2.9 cumulative GPA for all coursework completed at OC.

  • Completion of all pre-nursing courses required for the major with grades of “C” or higher.

  • Completion of all NURS designated courses required for the major with grades of “C” or higher

  • Completion of all university graduation requirements.

Multiple Majors 

Nursing students may, with prior approval of appropriate academic deans, pursue an additional major concurrent with nursing.  Such student must declare nursing as the first major and complete all degree requirements for both nursing and the additional major.  Students interested in this option are encouraged to meet with advisors from both majors as soon as possible to develop an academic plan.
