Health Science and Math Courses Offered Fully Online 

Science Prerequisites for Health Professions

The post-baccalaureate sequence – or science prerequisites – are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but need a few necessary prerequisite courses for their application. Most students will be in the workforce and changing careers and need one or two classes to satisfy their nursing prerequisites or medical school prerequisites.

Students may enroll in the post-baccalaureate online science prerequisite courses at any time and from anywhere in the world, as long as they meet the prerequisites for the individual courses.  The courses are self-paced and designed to be completed in 16 weeks.

Online science prerequisite courses offered:

Accredited courses

All of the courses are accredited through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

Enroll anytime

While you may enroll into our courses at any time, all courses start on the first and third Wednesday of the month. Course registrations need to be completed by noon EST on the Monday before the course opens. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific dates.

Take as many science prerequisites as you require

Students may take as many courses as needed in order to meet the prerequisite requirements for the health professions program to which they are applying. Many health professions programs accept these courses but we encourage you to check with the schools to which you are planning to apply to verify that the courses are acceptable before you register.

Learning Outcomes for Science Prerequisites for Health Professions Program

Upon completing a lecture course, students will be able to:

  1. Communicate scientific concepts and information clearly.
  2. Illustrate fundamental principles of the scientific method, as well as fundamental laws, theories, and principles of scientific disciplines.
  3. Apply knowledge and critical thinking skills to scientific problems.

Upon completing a lab course, students will be able to:

  1. Ask a question or define a problem that can be tested.
  2. Hypothesize possible result(s).
  3. Plan and/or conduct an investigation individually and/or collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence. 
  4. Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (i.e. computational, mathematical, graphical, etc) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims or determine an optimal design solution.
  5. Communicate the results by constructing an explanation based on multiple pieces of valid and reliable evidence obtained from a variety of sources (including students’ own investigations, models, theories, simulations, peer review) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
  6. Apply scientific ideas, principles, and/or evidence gained from various experiments, as well as other observations and/or research, to provide an explanation of phenomena and solve design problems, taking into account possible unanticipated effects.
