BSN - Transfer Program

The College of New Rochelle School of Nursing & Healthcare Professions accepts transfer application from students who are attending or who have previously attended any accredited two- or four-year college or university. Candidates must be in good standing at the institution in which they are currently or were most recently enrolled.

Effective June 2016, transfer students who have NOT taken any previous CNR courses must follow the BSN curriculum. Students must have successfully completed the courses required in the SN/Transfer curriculum before the first clinical course. 

For students who intend to be “clinical ready” for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 ONLY, the following three courses may be completed after starting NUR 217, but students must follow the required prerequisite guidelines.

  • NUR 101 Holistic Self-Care (.5 credits)
  • NUR 106 Cultural Issues in Healthcare (2 credits)
  • PSY 243 Developmental Psychology (3 credits)

Students who intend to be "clinical ready" after Spring 2017 must complete these three courses before entering NUR 217 Fall 2017.


At The College of New Rochelle nursing students in all programs are assigned to clinical rotations at some of the leading clinical agencies in the world. While students may have some opportunities to request available clinical sites during their 5 semesters of study, specific days, times, and locations cannot be guaranteed. Clinical rotations are scheduled Monday through Saturday with available clinical faculty. At present, there are no Sunday clinicals.
