Northwestern signs RN-BSN articulation agreement with WITCC
Feb 22, 2017
Northwestern College has recently signed an articulation agreement with Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC), based in Sioux City, that will allow students graduating with an associate’s degree in nursing to seamlessly complete their BSN online through Northwestern’s Graduate School & Adult Learning.
Northwestern’s online RN to BSN program requires that the last 30 credit hours of the program be taken through NWC. This articulation agreement will allow students from WITCC to transfer in their associate’s degree in nursing toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree in nursing at Northwestern.
Northwestern’s RN to BSN program is designed for RNs who graduated from associate degree or hospital diploma nursing programs, and allows working nurses to graduate in two years or less by taking just one eight-week course at a time. The program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Iowa Board of Nursing. Applicants must have a valid RN license and meet minimum GPA requirements for full acceptance into the program.
