To help you understand the different ways you can join our PN Program, we are hosting virtual information sessions to explain pathways available to you and address any questions you may have about the application process.

During these information sessions, we will discuss the following pathways available to you to join our PN Program:

We will provide insights into the Teachout plan, its benefits, and the steps required to secure your spot. Please note that participation in this pathway is contingent upon your receipt of the official Office of Higher Education approval letter.
  2. Transfer Cohort*: This cohort recognizes that your outstanding performance has earned eligibility for transfer credits in select courses. We’ll explain the courses eligible for transfer and guide you through the process.
  3. Transfer + Test Out Cohort*:This cohort presents the option to transfer in courses and receive credits for specific courses by testing out of them. We’ll discuss the test-out process and how it can contribute to your academic journey.
  4. New Student Pathway:Experience our unparalleled PN Program from the beginning, allowing you to build a strong foundation for your nursing career.

*Applicants must submit an official transcript from The Connecticut Office of Higher Education (OHE) to qualify for pathways 1, 2 and 3.
