Nursing—Transfer

FOR STUDENTS TRANSFERING TO NURSING PROGRAM OTHER THAN NDSU NURSING AT SANFORD HEALTH

Description

The transfer Nursing program at BSC provides the first two years of core classes toward a baccalaureate degree for students planning a career in nursing. Students study chemistry, anatomy and physiology, psychology, microbiology, sociology, nutrition, algebra and statistics and complete general education courses required for an associate degree.

Preparation

High School students who plan to follow a registered nursing curriculum should take biology, chemistry and the appropriate mathematics courses in high school. Students without this background should expect to spend longer than two years at BSC finishing coursework. Anyone considering this career field should have a sincere desire to help those experiencing disease, as well as the ability to deal with increasingly complex technology.

Requirements

Students who complete requirements of the suggested curriculum receive an Associate in Science degree and can transfer to a college of nursing at a four-year institution.

Contact your BSC advisor for assistance with transfer planning.
