1. Will courses I have taken elsewhere transfer? Is there a time restriction on courses?

    Non-nursing courses taken at a regionally accredited college should transfer.  The Registrar’s office will need an official transcript to review and make that decision.  The Nursing Department does not make the decision on transfer of credit.  It does not matter when the courses were taken except for the science courses and they should have been taken no more than seven years prior to admission; however, the Nursing Director can waive this restriction is certain situations, depending on the individual’s work or educational history since having completed the science courses.  A student who has science classes older than seven years should contact the Director of Nursing. The seven year restriction does not apply for students eligible for the transition option as it is presumed these individuals have been using that knowledge in their work in the healthcare field.
