Associate degree or diploma registered nurses (RNs) are individually evaluated for placement in the program as space is available. Specified prerequisites must be completed before acceptance into the nursing program and may be taken at Union College.
Associate degree or diploma RNs who have graduated from an accredited nursing program are eligible to transfer credit for Fundamentals, Gerontology, Pathophysiology & Pharmacology I & II, Medical-Surgical I, II, and III, Maternal Child Health, Mental Health, and Transition to Professional Practice from their previous nursing education. Additional nursing courses may be petitioned for transfer.
Non-United States educated RNs not licensed in the United States must pass standardized assessments (additional fee paid by student) for Fundamentals, Medical-Surgical, Maternal Child Health, and Mental Health, and successfully validate their clinical performance in nursing courses to receive credit for previous nursing education.
To achieve a bachelor’s degree, students must complete 124 credit hours of college courses which include credit hours of nursing courses, required general education courses, and electives. Specific considerations for graduation include that 30 of the final 36 credit hours are completed at Union College which requires RN-BSN students to complete four additional credits to achieve the residency requirement for graduation. Academic programs are developed with the assistance of a nursing academic advisor.
