Transferring nursing credits after failing out

  1. Unfortunately I flunked out of nursing school. My school offered to start me from the beginning and I'm under the impression that all programs will do the same. I'm hoping to find a program that will transfer my classes. Does anyone have any insight on this situation or better yet know of any schools that do transfer students?

    I know of NO schools that will accept nursing credits from another school. This is true across the country. You will likely be starting over.

    My advice would be to be grateful for the opportunity and use this experience to build upon your previous work and become a focused, superior nursing student.

    A classmate who started at another nursing school was only able to transfer the nursing fundamentals course, and those two schools were in the same system. Nursing schools do not accept nursing courses from other schools. However, I was able to use previous nursing courses as a basis to take offered exams for advanced placement at one school. That was a unique policy at the time that the nursing program eventually eliminated. You are lucky that the school is allowing you to start over. Take advantage of the opportunity.

    You need to jump on that. It is very unusual to be offered that anywhere after failing out. Usually it is one and done...pick a new career.

    Best of luck.
