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.
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.
School of Nursing General Education Credit Limitation
The School of Nursing limits the acceptance of credit from the National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS) and the American Council on Education (ACE) to 25% of the general education component towards the nursing degree requirements. No credit from these sources will be accepted for core requirements. Acceptance of credit earned from military training, CLEP, and DANTES examinations will not be limited.
This policy will affect all students enrolled on or after October 1, 2012.
A maximum of 7 credits from these sources can apply to the Associate degrees in nursing programs and a maximum of 15 credits can apply to the Bachelor of Science in nursing degree and the RN to Master of Science in nursing.
