Save Time

Up to 92 credits can be transferred into the Andrews bachelor's of nursing program from SMC. (Traditional community college-to-university transfers only transfer up to 60 credits.) Not only do you pay SMC's low tuition rate for the majority of your classes, significantly lowering the overall cost of the program, but the more credits that transfer, the more quickly you can get through the program.

Work While Getting Your BSN

Students who receive their associate degree and pass the NCLEX-RN exam can work as a registered nurse (RN) while pursuing their Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from Andrews. Students can also qualify for prior work credit toward their BSN degree.

Save Money On Your Degree

SMC students in the Andrews BSN program pay Andrews' discounted tuition credit, allowing students to complete their BSN for around $10,000. This is a significantly lower cost compared to tuition and programs at similar schools.
