It probably also depends on the state. I'm in Michigan, and have only attended a private college, so can not attest to the teaching styles of CC -vs- U profs,. I am applying to multiple schools for NS and I have researched the transferability of credits between the schools in my area (a mix of 11 CCs, Univ, and private schools with accredited nursing programs
) and have found in all cases that the gen eds transfer but non of the nursing track does. Not sure why, have never asked, but suspect it has something to do with the clinical portions / scheduling.
In my opinion, if the credits are transferable, the coursework and information is the same. Here we have a website to check transferability ( www.michigantransfernetwork.org
) of credits. Google your state to see if you have one.
Hope this helps.
