RN to BSN College Credits

I would like to know if you will take any credits I earn in a RN program and apply it to my hours. I failed RN program by 2/10 of a point 2 days before graduation. I would also like to know if you have financial aid. Thank you for your reply.

Most nursing degree programs offer some form of financial aid and credit transfers. The College Network, for example, guarantees financing for their portion of the nursing program. Once you transfer into a traditional college degree program, your financial aid eligibility is the same as any other full or part time college student.

College credits are generally given to those who meet each college’s guidelines.
South University, for example, allows Registered Nurses who have completed an associate’s degree from an accredited institution, or who have received a diploma from a school of nursing accredited by the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) to apply credits towards completion of their RN to BSN online degree program.

Essentially your question needs to be directed to the nursing program advisor for th school to which you would like to apply. Please complete any information request form on the Nursing Degree Net website to speak with an advisor about your transfer credits and financial aid needs.

Financial aid sources for nursing and healthcare programs are expanding. If you need more money for college and can’t get enough Federal Financial Aid, try a private college loan. You can apply online for up to $35,000 per college year, from our website or from www.StudentLoansEd.com.
