School of Nursing - Undergraduate

 

Change an existing course Profession Nursing Integration NUR Senior (4xxx) 945 C

The course, NUR 4945C, Professional Nursing Integration, is a variable credit course, with 3 credit hours in the RN-BSN program and up to 7 credit hours for the undergraduate prelicensure course.  When we made changes to the nursing curriculum this year, NUR 4945C was inadvertently listed as "fixed" credit instead of variable credit hours.
