Each Purdue University Northwest degree program has specific requirements that you must meet in order to enroll. Please read the admissions guidelines below for the MSN program. For specific questions or more details, view our admissions FAQs or access the MSN Student Handbook.
A maximum of 9 semester hours may be used as transfer credit from another university. Courses must fulfill curriculum requirements; must have been taken at a university with a national nursing accreditation; and must have a grade of the equivalent of 3.0 (on a 4-point scale) or higher. All specialty and advanced core courses, including NUR 51000 - Research and Evidence-Based Nursing, must be taken at PNW. A request for an exception to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Other core courses will be evaluated for equivalency and transferability. You must submit the syllabi for all courses you wish to have considered for transfer credit by the application deadline date.
Transfer credits are dependent upon program approval.
