Delta College is making it easier to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) with the addition of two new 3+1 articulation agreements with Central Michigan University and Oakland University.
The bachelor’s programs at both schools are a natural progression from the Delta Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN). Under the agreements, CMU will accept up to 90 transfer credits from Delta, with only 30 credits needed to complete the bachelor’s degree. While at CMU, students can take up to 12 credits while preparing for the NCLEX-RN exam. Oakland will accept up to 93 transfer credits from Delta, with only 32 remaining to complete the bachelor’s program at a special price of $9,995 with no additional fees.
"These agreements are a wonderful opportunity for graduates of our registered nurse program to continue their education. We are pleased to have signed these agreements ensuring a smooth transition to other top-quality programs," said Dr. Wanda Zenzen, Associate Professor and Nursing Coordinator at Delta College.
Other Nursing Transfer Options
Many Delta RN graduates go on to earn a bachelor’s degree as they embark on careers in clinical settings such as acute care hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, doctor's offices, home health care settings, hospices, industrial facilities and prisons.
In addition, Delta College has a partnership with both Davenport and Saginaw Valley State University to provide concurrent enrollment in which students in Delta’s RN program may take classes toward their BSN at the same time. The advantages of these programs for students is that it allows them to attain their BSN within two or three semesters of completing their ADN, and the total cost of their education is less than if they were to take all of their courses through the university. Davenport students can also continue in the concurrent program to earn a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) as either a generalist or a family nurse practitioner.
For the working RN, Delta also has articulation agreements in place with several universities, including CMU, SVSU, Davenport, Ferris State, Oakland and the University of Michigan-Flint, that provide the BSN Completion program entirely online. Most of these program require only about 34 credits to complete.
