Transferring to Northwestern

You can expect to finish your BSN in 2 years or less, depending on how many credits you transfer and if you choose a part time or full time track.

Transferring credits from community colleges

Northwestern College grants transfer of course equivalents from Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) or hospital diploma toward BSN requirements. Only the last 30 credits of your BSN must be completed through Northwestern. By reviewing your transcripts, we can show you exactly how your completed courses will fulfill Northwestern BSN requirements.

Transferring your work experience

Northwestern grants up to 66 credits to working nurses with confirmation of 7 years RN experience along with an ADN degree or Hospital diploma. You may have also completed additional elective credits that will qualify as required course equivalents.
