Advanced Placement (AP) Nursing – Associate of Science Degree in Nursing

The Advanced Placement (AP) option is designed to expand upon the previous education of the Practical Nurse. Applicants must have a current Practical Nurse license. The application process is the same as for the Associate of Science Degree in Nursing except a NH State Police Criminal background check is required of any applicant who holds a PN license other than a NH LPN. Instructions for the criminal background check are available in the nursing office. The results of this background check must be submitted to the ASN Department Chairperson who will determine the applicant’s eligibility for admission to the ASN Program. Admission is on a space available basis. In addition to the above requirements, AP applicants are required to meet minimum score requirements on the Test of Essential

Academic Skills (TEAS) Assessment and achieve a Proficiency Level II on both the ATI Fundamentals of Nursing Assessment and Nutrition Assessment.

Applications and completed application requirements must be received in the Office of Admissions by February 28 for the application to be placed in the applicant pool for consideration. Students are notified of acceptance by March 31.

Equivalent nursing credits of “B-” (80%) or higher, from a regionally accredited nursing school may be transferred from the applicants’ basic practical nursing program. Equivalency of credits will be determined by the ASN Department Chairperson when transcripts and course descriptions are submitted. Students from non-regionally accredited programs who achieved credits with a “B-” or higher, should contact the ASN Department Chairperson to determine eligibility for possible recognition of previous academic work.
