Transfer Student Information
Transfer students must meet the admission requirements of Truett-McConnell College and provide official transcripts from all previously attended institutions including prior nursing education and other supporting documentation as requested such as, immunization records. Applicants who have attended another nursing education program at any time are required to indicate this attendance on the nursing application and to submit a letter of eligibility to return from the dean/or chair of the previous nursing program. Failure to disclose this information may lead to dismissal from Truett-McConnell College BSN program. Transfer students who have been dismissed from another nursing education program are ineligible for admission to the BSN program.
The BSN program provides nursing students with a strong practice foundation which solidifies their nursing skills and their ability to practice competently in a variety of settings upon graduation. Clinical experiences take place in a wide range of health care facilities which may include hospitals, public health departments, mental health agencies, counseling centers, long-term and rehabilitation facilities, rape response, hospice care, urgent care, physician offices, and others. As a result of the various clinical course locations, nursing students will be required to travel in surrounding areas for clinical experiences. Students are responsible for their own transportation to clinical sites and are required to provide their own automobile insurance.
