Are there other courses I may get credit for?
Possibly. In the BSN-ASD program students take a nursing evidence-based practice/research course and a healthcare economics course. If students had a prior research course, it can be evaluated for substitution for the nursing evidence-based practice course provided there is at least an 80% match. If student had an economics course and it is an equivalent course for micro or macroeconomics, this course can be substituted for the healthcare economics course. This evaluation can be completed after you start the program.
