The authors describe a systematic process for prerequisite course evaluation in a baccalaureate nursing program. A task force involved faculty and students in determining the usefulness of current prerequisites. Evaluation was in terms of consistency with program philosophy, relevance to nursing science course concepts, and contribution to the preparation of a well-educated person. The outcome is a more cohesive program for preparing students for nursing science courses and professional practice.
