Transferring nursing credits after failing

  1. Unfortunately I failed out of OB and with being so close to the end I have no inclination of starting all over. Does anybody have any insight on the issue or better yet know of any schools that transfer students who failed?

    Nursing schools' curriculum varies between schools. BONs give schools requirements and it is up to the individual schools how they want to structure their program. Some schools have a separate Medical Terminology class, others incorporate it into each class. Some schools have a separate pharmacology class, others incorporate it into all their classes. My school had the OB and Peds class combined starting with maternity in the first half of the semester and Peds in the second half. Other schools had a separate Maternity and Peds classes. Nursing programs are designed for a student to complete their entire program instead of piece it together from different schools.

    You would have to call the school you are looking to transfer to and find out if they would accept the credits. That's the only way to know for sure. You might have a better chance just staying at your school and starting the program over, or appealing the decision if that is possible.

    Here's some info I found with a quick google search...hopefully it'll help! Good Luck!
