COLLIN DEGREE TRACKING WORKSHEET
Nursing of Study (RNFS)
Associate of Arts Degree
The Nursing Field of Study (FOS) was prepared by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to delineate a set of
courses which will satisfy the lower division requirements for a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The courses identified in the FOS
serve as the lower division requirements of all public four-year colleges and universities in the state of Texas for students
seeking a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and are fully transferable. The completed FOS is designed to facilitate
the articulation of a nurse from the associate degree level to the BSN level. The FOS was also designed to facilitate transfer
from one associate degree program to another within the state of Texas. Collin’s nursing program has adopted an integrated
curriculum approach to the FOS. In order to complete the FOS, students must be admitted into the AAS RN program. Students
should check with an academic advisor or their transfer college or university for additional and/or specific degree requirements.
