									                                NURSING TRANSFER PLAN
                   To Azusa Pacific University from Victor Valley College

This transfer plan is to be used as a guide for students wishing to transfer to Azusa Pacific
University’s Two-Plus-Two (High Desert) BSN Program. This is a tool to aid students in knowing
which courses APU will accept to fulfill General Studies and Nursing degree requirements. It is the
student’s responsibility to see that all of the requirements are met upon completing their degree at
APU. Admission and transfer policies can also be found in the 2011-2012 catalog.

Admission to the Two-Plus-Two (High Desert) BSN Program
Admission to the university does not guarantee admission into the School of Nursing. Students may declare
their desire to be admitted into a BSN Program when applying to the university on their application. Once
accepted to the university, these students will be reviewed for admission into the Two-Plus-Two (High
Desert) Option. The Two-Plus-Two Option has been designed to meet the needs of the transfer student
interested in pursuing a baccalaureate degree in nursing. Once accepted, students must remain in the Two-
Plus-Two Option for the duration of the program. They cannot decide to switch to the Generic Option once
they have been accepted into the Two-Plus-Two Option.

Transfer applicants interested in the Two-Plus-Two (High Desert) Option must meet the following
admission requirements:
1. Submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions indicating interest in becoming a nursing
major and pursuing the Two-Plus-Two (High Desert) Option. Include in that application the following
          a. Official transcripts from all college and/or universities.

          c. A one-page statement of professional goals in nursing.

units), Biochemistry (1 unit), Human Physiology w/lab (4 units), and General Microbiology w/ lab (4 units)
with no lower than a B- (2.7) grade-point average. Receive credit for college algebra.
5. Once a student has received a letter of acceptance into the School of Nursing, the following must be
provided proof of:
          a. Full physical examination clearance done within the past 12 months. This report is to be
submitted to the APU Health Center.
          b. Current two-step TB tests, Hepatitis B, MMR titer, Varicella titer, and DTAP immunizations.
          c. A current background check.

health care programs are evaluated individually and may be given credit for courses that meet the
2. Up to 70 units of community college credit and additional units from a university (per registrar’s approval)
may be transferred. No community college nursing credit will be transferred. It might be possible for nursing
units from a nationally accredited university to be transferred in by administrative approval. Some nursing
courses may be challenged by the applicant if they have taken similar coursework from another university.
3. Students with transferable nursing courses must take UNRS 270 Theories and Concepts in Professional
Nursing prior to any other nursing course at APU except UNRS 220 Health Assessment, which may be
taken concurrently.
4. Transfer students with nursing credit must meet the Two-Plus-Two requirements for transfer applicants
above, plus:
          a. Submit a letter of recommendation/academic standing from the dean/director of the previous
school to the School of Nursing.
          b. Submit course syllabi and catalog descriptions for all courses for which nursing transfer credit is
requested to the School of Nursing.
                   c. The School of Nursing will only consider accepting nursing courses transferred in from an
          accredited baccalaureate nursing program.
