Notes:
1. Students will receive credit for CHE 101 if they complete with a passing grade, BIO 150 & BIO 151 at DCCC. Regardless of the number of transferrable credits, the program at Holy Family University will take students 2.5 years to complete due to course and clinical sequencing.
2. MAT 151 is a prerequisite for entry into the program. MAT 210 is not a prerequisite for entry into the program, and can be completed at Holy Family University if a student chooses.
3. Students not participating in the Dual Admission program with La Salle University may need to take additional courses to meet Core requirements. Meet with a Transfer Advisor for additional information.
4. Neumann recommends that all science courses receive a 2.5 GPA or higher at the first attempt of completion. All science, including Nutrition and Statistics, must be taken within five years of application to Nursing major. Neumann prefers CHE 101 and CHE 102. Both must be completed in order to satisfy the Nursing Department's Chemistry requirements for Neumann.
5. Students must complete both BIO 150 and BIO 151 at DCCC in order to receive credit at Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences. Three year evening/weekend associate degree program applicants must complete Human Anatomy & Physiology I and II with a grade of “C” or better prior to entering NUR 101.
6. Students should complete MAT 100 if they did not complete or pass Algebra II in High School. This serves as a prerequisite to the program and will not count towards ASN degree requirements for Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences.
7. A 2.5 GPA is preferred in these courses. All applicants are required to complete ATI TEAS entrance exam.
8. Only needed if student did not complete a chemistry in High School with a grade of "C" or higher.
9. Thomas Jefferson - BIO 240 meets prerequisite requirements for Nursing, BST, Rad Sci. Does not meet requirements for PT and considered an elective for BS/MS OT. Students who complete ENG 100 can use the course to meet 3 cr. of the 9 cr. elective requirement.
10. Students must complete BIO 150, BIO 151, CHE 101 or CHE 110 and BIO 230 or BIO 240 at DCCC in order to receive credit for the Chemistry at Widener. Students must receive a "C" or higher grade in order for the courses to transfer to Widener.
