Nurse practitioner programs
- 0Sep 9, '11 by sunnypriceI just had a quick question for anyone that might have some information on an NP program out there that is fairly accepting with transfer credits. I have my RN and had almost completed my BSN (2 classes away) but had to move for employment reasons. I have contacted a couple programs but they said that I would have to retake the entire BSN coursework to complete their program.
Does anyone know of a program out there that could accept my BSN coursework? I've completed Nurs. research, community health, physical assessment, and leadership. I would ultimately like to get my FNP degree, but if it is recommended to get my BSN first then I will. Any help will be appreciated.

At least, in theory, it could work!
