Duquesne and Grove City College Forge 4+1 Nursing Articulation Deal
A new articulation agreement will enable qualified Grove City College students admission to the Duquesne University School of Nursing's accelerated Second Degree Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.
Beginning in the fall of 2018, up to four students who have earned a Bachelor of Science or Arts degree at Grove City College, completed prerequisite courses and earned a GPA of 3.0 or better will be admitted to Duquesne's Second Degree BSN program. The unique program allows non-nursing baccalaureate degree holders to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in three semesters.
"We are very excited to welcome ambitious, intelligent, mission-driven nursing majors from Grove City College to Duquesne University," said Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow, dean and professor of the Duquesne University School of Nursing. "This partnership is an ideal way to further the academic aspirations of future nursing majors."
Dr. Robert Graham, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Grove City College, echoed Glasgow's sentiment. "We are excited to partner with Duquesne University School of Nursing to provide our graduates with another path to a rewarding and impactful career where they can demonstrate their leadership and serve the common good," he said.
