A.S. program in Nursing transitioning to B.S. program

The national picture of nursing education is changing.

As a leader in the field, Penn State is transitioning the associate of science (A.S.) degree in Nursing to a baccalaureate of science (B.S.) degree in Nursing at the Altoona, Erie, Fayette, Mont Alto and Worthington Scranton campuses.

This transition aligns with the future of nursing practice and projected employment patterns.

The fall 2014 semester will be the final opportunity for admission to the two-year associate of science (A.S.) program in Nursing, and the first opportunity for admission to the four-year baccalaureate of science (B.S.) program in Nursing at these five campuses.
