Emory & Henry College takes great pride in the liberal arts foundation. BSN nurses who graduate will have this knowledge base to enhance the perspective of healthcare on a local, national and global level.

Students accepted into the RN to BSN Program will be allowed to transfer in 39 credits achieved through their nursing courses. General education which meets the CORE requirements will be determined according to the courses accepted from previous institutions, (i.e., Anatomy & Physiology, English, etc.).
