Changes to the Associate Degree in Nursing Program Requirements

As of October 1, 2012, future students will no longer be able to take "NURX 104 Essentials of Nursing Care: Health Safety" prior to enrollment.

  • The anatomy and physiology and the microbiology requirements will be accepted toward the associate degree in nursing if they were completed no more than five years prior to the date of enrollment and meet the content requirements as outlined in the current nursing catalog.
  • The anatomy and physiology and the microbiology requirements must be completed before registering for associate degree in nursing theory examinations with the exception of the Transition to the Registered Professional Nurse Role examination.

Anatomy, physiology and microbiology courses generally are acceptable for transfer if they are degree level, include all major body systems, and meet the minimal requirements required for an associate degree in nursing program.
