See Graduation from the University for University General Education Program requirements. Note the following requirements are specified for this program:

Support Courses for Nursing Major (10 hours)

All support courses must be completed with a minimum cumulative grade of “C”.

Microbiology (4 hours):

Science courses must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.66 and must have been completed in the past 7 years. Refer to Science Course Validation section below.

Nutrition (3 hours):

Statistics (3 hours):

If MATH 1530   is used for math general education course and support course, the student will need an elective course for the additional 3 hours.

Nursing Course Requirements - RN Students

Upper Division Elective (3 hours):

Any 3000-4000 course.


The remaining hours for the major requirements are fulfilled by validation.

Under the Tennessee Career Mobility Plan registered nurses who have graduated from Tennessee schools or out-of-state Nursing accredited programs will be able to progress to the baccalaureate degree in nursing without testing to verify previous nursing education. Registered nurses articulating to the baccalaureate level may be awarded or transfer in nursing credits equivalent to approximately one year of nursing courses. For this to occur, a minimum grade of “C” must have been earned in previous nursing course work. Nursing credits transferred or awarded will be held in escrow. These credits will be placed on individual transcripts only after students have successfully completed 15 hours of nursing courses with a minimum grade of “C” in The Loewenberg College of Nursing. Non nursing credits are transferred according to university policies. Testing will be required for graduates of non Nursing accredited programs or for students who have not been in active clinical practice in the past three years.


*Must satisfy University General Education Program Requirements

1 Take SOCI 3311, or any approved statistics course. If statistics was taken as your general education math, either MATH 1530, you may take an elective course.


Progression Of Nursing Coursework for RNs:

All courses in group A must be completed before enrolling in any courses in group B. All courses in group B must be completed before enrolling in any courses in group C.

Science Course Validation:

If seven years have lapsed since credit was earned in BIOL 2010 /BIOL 2011  and BIOL 2020 /BIOL 2021  (Anatomy and Physiology), or BIOL 1230 /BIOL 1231  (Microbiology), the content is considered outdated, and students are required to either repeat the course(s) or validate currency of knowledge. Required validation of current science knowledge for RNs will occur through employer verification, repeating of course, taking a higher level science course in the same field, or obtaining a fiftieth (50th) percentile score or above on the NLN appropriate science test.
