Most nurses have completed the majority of the general education requirements as part of their AAS Nursing program, but it varies case-by-case. To identify any gaps, all applicants receive a free transcript evaluation. If general education courses are needed, students can take them online through NCU (while enrolled in the BSN program) or through a community college. In some cases, test-out options are also available. Enrollment advisors assist students in determining the best options for their situation.
