ASN students requesting to take BSN courses during the third, fourth, or fifth trimesters of the ASN program must submit a “Petition for Academic Exemption” Form to the Department Chair and have a Nursing GPA of at least 3.00.
A.S. Nursing students are not permitted to take the B.S. religion course (RELT 368 World Religions for Healthcare Professions) during the A.S. Nursing portion of the program until they have completed six (6) lower division religion credits. If this course is taken for credit towards the A.S. Nursing portion of the program, students will not be able to meet the requirements of the B.S. Nursing degree. A.S. Students may, however, take other B.S. general education courses to meet the credit requirements for a full course load, and these will be applied towards the B.S. degree.
