ASN Transfer to NYC?

by MYarr MYarr Member


I was wondering if anyone knows if it would be possible to transfer to an ASN program in NYC area after completing my first semester of an ASN program in Florida? I know some schools won't accept credits from other Nursing programs so I would feel like I am wasting my time.

Also, I have a prior degree in Political Science, but was thinking accelerated programs might be too difficult for a first timer living in the city.

Does anyone have any experience or any suggestions?

Honestly, I think each school would take nursing program transfer applications either on a case-by-case basis or not at all. Your best bet would be to start calling schools and asking about their transfer policy and starting the process that way. Just remember, you would essentially be looking to fill a spot of someone who is no longer in a program for the most part so if a class is full they very well may reject your application.

Thank you for your reply.

I would even consider applying to ABSN programs since I have my first degree. Only issue there is cost and intensity of the programs. Also, the only prerequisite some of those schools require that I do not have is Chemistry. I'm not sure something so expensive with an intense schedule would be good for someone new to the city.
