COVID-19 Spring 2020 Update Regarding Prerequisite Courses

Please note that if you feel the need to change one of your prerequisite courses to A/Pass/Fail, we understand; you will just have to complete the courses again for a letter grade in another semester.  How or if that changes your timeline for your application to the nursing program is different for each student.  Also please note for those enrolled in prerequisite courses at Washburn the deadline for changing to this option is no later than 5 p.m. on May 22, 2020 (after final grades are posted).
