Transfer in for Your BSN

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Transfer Option is available to students who transfer into the School of Nursing with 60 semester hours of college course credit, and it provides them with a solid foundation for beginning a career as a registered nurse. 

Part One: Prerequisites

As a BSN Transfer Student, the first two years of general education prerequisites (60 hours) can be taken at an accredited college or university. Students may apply and be admitted to the nursing program while the prerequisites are in progress. All required courses must be completed before enrolling in the BSN program in the fall semester. The School of Nursing selects applicants who have the greatest potential for success in the BSN program.

Part Two: Nursing

In the remaining two years of college, you’ll learn the practice of nursing in clinical and classroom settings within Emory University's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. The nursing program is designed to be completed in four semesters of full-time enrollment (fall, spring, fall, spring).

Graduates of the BSN program are eligible to take the NCLEX examination to become a Registered Nurse in any US state. BSN graduates can work in a number of different practice areas, including intensive care, pediatrics, adult acute care, and many others.
