Concord, NH – Granite State College is thrilled to renew its agreement with the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) to help nursing graduates from New Hampshire’s community colleges earn a high-quality and affordable bachelor’s degree.
This partnership builds a credit-efficient bridge between the nursing programs at each CCSNH institution and Granite State’s RN to BSN program, allowing students to enter the program with a seamless transition. CCSNH nursing graduates also receive an exclusive scholarship that reduces the pre-credit cost of tuition to match CCSNH’s affordable tuition rates.
“Many of the classes I took prior to Granite State carried over as transfer credit and a lot of my general education requirements were covered. This is helping me get on track to graduate quickly and affordably,” shared Courtney Whitten, an alumna of Great Bay Community College and current BSN major. An employee of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, she adds: “I hope to move towards more advanced nursing roles once I earn my Bachelor of Science in Nursing.”
Graduates with an associate degree in nursing (ADN) from Great Bay, Lakes Region, Manchester, Nashua, NHTI, River Valley, and White Mountains Community College are eligible for the benefits offered through this partnership. Other eligibility requirements include:
- Completed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN)
- Active RN license issued from the state where you currently practice
Current CCSNH students who plan to attend Granite State College may be conditionally admitted prior to passing the NCLEX-RN and will have the option of taking select nursing courses prior to gaining full acceptance.
Granite State College has rolling admissions and four academic terms each year. Registration for the 2019 Winter Term begins on October 29 2019, and interested students are encouraged to request information.
