Fisk, Galen Create New Pathway to Nursing

Fisk University and Galen College of Nursing have announced an articulation agreement to create a new pathway in nursing for Fisk students. Filling an unmet need for students enrolled in science programs who wish to explore nursing, the agreement allows for Fisk degree coursework credits to transfer to Galen College of Nursing so students may go directly into Galen's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

"The articulation agreement marries our university's rich tradition of scholarly excellence with a new opportunity to receive an unparalleled nursing education from Galen College of Nursing - helping drive diversity and leadership in the nursing field," said Fisk University President Vann Newkirk Sr., PhD.

Prospective students must first be granted admission into undergraduate degree programs in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology or in Biology at Fisk University. Upon successful completion of the degree, a student will be granted admission to the BSN program at Galen College of Nursing, which can then be completed in as little as two years.
