The maximum number of credits that can be applied to a School of Nursing degree program by a non-degree seeking student is six. Students will not be allowed to take courses beyond the six credit limit unless an exception is made by the appropriate program director.

Non-degree seeking students may not enroll in any clinical courses. Courses available to non-degree seeking students are:

  • Biostatistics for Evidence-based Practice
  • Context of Health Care for Advanced Practice Nursing,
  • Philosophical, Theoretical, and Ethical Perspectives of Advanced Nursing Practice
  • The Research Process and its Application to Evidence-Based Practice

Non-degree seeking students may apply to a degree program at any time before completing six credits. There is no guarantee that applicants who have taken courses as a non-degree seeking student will be admitted to a degree program. All applicants to a degree program must meet the admission requirements outlined in the Admissions section of this handbook and catalog. Additional courses are under review for possible inclusion in the list of approved courses available to non-degree seeking students. Please check with the Office of Records and Registration for details.
