Each Purdue University Northwest degree program has specific requirements that you must meet in order to enroll. Please read the admissions guidelines for the RN-to-BSN program listed below. For specific questions or more details, view our admissions FAQs or the RN-to-BSN Student Handbook.
Transferring Credits from Another RN-to-BSN Program
At least 32 credit hours at the 300 level or higher must be completed at PNW. The 34 credit hours in the nursing core courses fulfill that requirement. Applicants wishing to transfer nursing coursework in at the 300 level may not (in most cases) be able to do so because of our residency rule. Such requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Upon admission to the University, students must submit all official transcripts from all previous schools attended. These transcripts are factored into a cumulative GPA, which must be a 2.3 or higher to gain admission to the program. Transcripts that were not presented at the time of admission will not be accepted by the College of Nursing and will not be applied toward transfer credit.
