Save on BSN Prerequisites & Transfer to Complete

There are various options available to those pursuing an Associate Degree in Nursing to complete additional courses at a significant savings and in a familiar environment as they prepare to transfer. Students can then complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at the four-year university of their choice. Future nurses working toward this goal often complete their associate degree, enter the workforce, and take advantage of employer tuition reimbursement to complete their bachelor degree. Check out transfer guides to universities across the state.
