Transfer of Credits – Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Degree

The BSN program at Labouré College requires students to complete general education credits beyond the associate degree level. Students may transfer courses from other accredited academic institutions to meet some of the requirements, provided they meet the following conditions: 

  • Statistics: One 3-credit course at any level either with a grade of C or higher. If taken as part of an associate’s degree program, MAT 3410 is waived and the student may take an elective instead. If the course was not counted toward an associate’s degree, then it may be transferred for credit toward the BSN degree.
  • Ethics: One 3-credit course at any level either with a grade of C or higher. If taken as part of an associate’s degree program, ETH 3210 is waived and the student may take an elective instead. If the course was not counted toward an associate’s degree, then it may be transferred for credit toward the BSN degree.
  • Distribution Requirements: Up to 12 credits in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences beyond the associate’s degree. Students must have at least one course in each of the three domains. Six credits may be transferred from the introductory level but at least 6 credits must be at the level equivalent to or higher than a 2000-level Labouré course.
  • Capstone: The Senior Capstone project in non-transferable. It must be completed in residence.

Students who do not hold other baccalaureate degrees may fulfill up to 15 of the required general education credits through the transfer process. They must, however, meet the statistics and ethics requirements (either in residence or through transfer credit) and complete at least one 3-credit course and their Senior Capstone project in residence.

Students who hold other baccalaureate degrees may fulfill up to 18 of the required general education credits through the transfer process. However, they must meet the statistics and ethics requirements (either in residence or through transfer credit) and complete their Senior Capstone project in residence.
