The Associate of Science (Pre-Nursing) is designed to provide students continuing study to complete the bachelor’s degree in Nursing at most institutions within Tennessee or neighboring states. Some flexibility is provided in the area of emphasis courses allowing the student and advisor to customize the program of study tailored to the curriculum at the institution of interest.
It is important that students identify their intended transfer nursing program early in their college career, preferably the first or second semester. Students are strongly advised to carefully research transfer institution requirements and work closely with their advisor in planning the program of study, preparing for graduation, and making application to the institution and school of nursing. Students who plan to apply for a two-year Nursing A.A.S. degree program should work with an advisor on a course of study designed to meet the specific Nursing A.A.S. entrance requirements.
Students who plan to apply for Volunteer State’s Nursing A.A.S. program should follow the first two semesters specified by that program.
This program of study has been created to permit some flexibility in the curriculum to meet the requirement of most nursing programs. Because nursing school entrance requirements can change without notice, students are strongly advised to contact the senior institution for specific program of study requirements for admission to the nursing program. All nursing programs are extremely competitive and students are directed to consult their advisor each semester before registering for classes and in planning for graduation. Completion of all pre-requisite courses and the A.S. degree do not guarantee admission as each school of nursing has its own admissions requirements, standards, and criteria for selection. Some schools of nursing require that their introductory nursing course or other courses not specified by this program of study be taken prior to admission.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at https://www.volstate.edu/testing.
