Listed are courses included in the curriculum at St. Joseph's College of Nursing. General education courses taken at another regionally accredited college or university may be eligible for transfer credit if similar in content and credit hours. Additionally, a minimum grade of "C" (2.0) must have been earned to be awarded transfer credit. Refer to our “Credit for Previous Coursework” on our website or in our catalog.
