ADMISSION REQUIREMENT FOR THE ASN PROGRAMS
DUAL ADMISSION TO THE ASN AND BSN DEGREE PROGRAMS
TRANSITION INTO THE RN TO BSN PROGRAM
Students who are currently enrolled in the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) Program who plan to continue their education through the RN - BSN track may transition into the Bachelors of Science Nursing (BSN) Program in the second year of their ASN classes.
Students are eligible to enroll in Nursing 3320 Health Assessment and in Nursing 3340 Nursing Care of the Older Adult with the consent of the instructor. Since it is important for students to progress from the normal to the abnormal, it is strongly recommended that Nursing 3320, Health Assessment, be the first class taken. ASN students are still held responsible to meet all of the requirements to graduate with the Associate Degree at the end of their second year of nursing. Students must also successfully complete their licensing exam to continue in the Bachelors of Science Nursing Program.
After graduation from the ASN Program, students who wish to pursue their BS in must change their degree to BSN in the Registrar’s Office. See a BSN faculty member for current information regarding program requirements.
