Important Notice:

Completion of this degree allows a student to be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a Registered Nurse. Passing the NCLEX-RN exam and completion of this transfer degree provide the general education and nursing courses for direct transfer with only one additional year of study to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-to-BSN pathway).
