If I want to eventually go into the Nursing program at my Community College then transfer for my bachelors, what do I need to do?

I've found a lot of different information about this question, but I am seriously lost. I don't know if I need to get my AA degree, general education "degree", or the 48 credits that complete the lower education at a university. The Cypress College Nursing Program just requires freshman English and Algebra I, so I'm not quite positive how many classes/units I need. Any ideas? The counselors just keep turning me away just telling me to look online, but I swear it's not there. :( Thanks guys. Topic: Academics at Cypress College | Asked by: Anonymous | Asked on 08/15/2012

First off, I'm sorry you feel like you're not getting the right answers from the counselors. Nursing has very specific requirements, so I like to recommend people see the two counselors in the Health Science Programs when they need input from a counselor. The best first-step for information about our Nursing Program is to attend one of their regularly scheduled workshops. The next one is on August 21. You can find more info here: http://www.cypresscollege.edu/newsEvents/eventDetails.aspx?Channel=%2fChannels%2fCampus+Wide&WorkflowItemID=85a63b8c-e567-460e-b83b-c61aba262e23 The RSVP link on that page will show you other dates as well. The workshop explains program requirements, the application process, selection criteria, cost, background check, physical requirements, and more. You'll also find more information on the RN website at: http://www.cypresscollege.edu/academics/academicPrograms/HealthScience/RegisteredNursing ... as well as in the catalog: http://www.cypresscollege.edu/academics/CollegeCatalog.aspx All that said, I would strongly encourage attending the workshop, because it was designed to cover all the questions students who are interested in the program ask. Best of luck.

Hi! You're making a great decision to start at a community college and then move to a four-year college. Your best bet is to think of where you want to get your Bachelor's degree and call these schools to find out what their transfer requirements are. If you want to go to a state school, they probably have the same requirements across the board. If you're interested in a private university, they might require you to take some specific classes before transferring. This way, you can ensure that you are able to transfer, and then worry about fulfilling the community college requirements after. Hope this helps!
