The application for 12 credits of professional experience credit occurs at the midpoint in the student's plan of study.  The earned credits will be entered on the transcript by the registrar as CR at the completion of the RN-B.S. nursing program. To earn the credits, the student must complete 1,500 hours of employer verified RN licensed employment and submit a completed Professional Experience Credit Form addressing the experience of professional employment and lifelong learning. (The employer-verified RN work hours will be evaluated near the completion of the RN-B.S. nursing program.) The RN-B.S. adviser will assist the student through the process.

Students must complete RN-B.S. nursing courses with a “C” (82%) or higher in order to progress in the nursing program.
