Introduction to the Pre-Nursing Associate in Arts (AA) - University Transfer Program

The program as outlined below is intended to give the student the first two years of a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s degree in nursing and will satisfy the requirements of most baccalaureate nursing programs. In some instances, however, it is necessary for the student to take the entire program at the institution granting the nursing degree. Since requirements of colleges vary, students should obtain a catalog of the college to which they plan to transfer and consult with the dean of the intended nursing program in order to make the best choice of courses in junior college. In some cases, it may be desirable for the student to transfer at the end of the freshman year.

Following is a suggested sequence for taking courses in this program. The prescribed 60 hours are required for an Associate in Arts degree.

Students should consult with an advisor at the college or university they plan to attend for the specific courses recommended by that institution. We strongly encourage you to contact the Pensacola State College Biological Sciences Department for assistance in planning your program of study.
