Delta College graduates who earned an associate’s degree in nursing can continue their education entirely online thanks to a new partnership with Chamberlain University, known as the oldest nursing school in the U.S.
The agreement permits students to transfer associate’s degree credits from Delta toward a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Chamberlain. To be admitted to the program, students must have an associate’s degree in nursing from Delta and be a current registered nurse.
“The option to complete a bachelor’s degree program online is especially appealing because many of Delta’s graduates are currently working in the field,” said Daisy McQuiston, associate professor of nursing and interim nursing program coordinator for Delta. “This is a great option for graduates who want to pursue higher-level advancement in their nursing careers.”
Up to 87 credits will transfer under the new agreement, which leaves students about three semesters to complete the bachelor’s degree program.
Chamberlain University’s history dates to 1889. It’s considered the oldest nursing school in the U.S., with its main campus in Grove Park, Illinois.
Delta has nursing articulation agreements in place with seven additional colleges and universities: Central Michigan University, Davenport University, Ferris State University, Oakland University, University of Michigan – Flint, Saginaw Valley State University and University of Michigan.
