Prospective students who plan to take non-nursing courses at other institutions should contact the program chair regarding transfer of credit prior to taking the courses. The Human Anatomy & Physiology and Microbiology courses must include labs. All science courses must have been completed within the last six (6) years. A minimum grade of "C" must be earned in all required courses for the ASN curriculum. Two failures (less than "C") in a required science course will disqualify a student from admission into the ASN Program.
