About the Nursing Program

The Health Science major is only available to students admitted to Drury’s traditional day school as first time freshmen (i.e., non-transfer students with the exception of up to 30 credit hours of dual, IB, and/or AP credit from high school) who also complete the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing or diagnostic imaging from Cox College.

Dual degree students simultaneously earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in health science from Drury and a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing or diagnostic imaging from Cox College. Courses from the BSN or BSDI program at Cox will transfer to Drury to fulfill some of the requirements for the health science major.
