About the Program
The Bachelor’s (BSVN) Completion Program builds upon college credits and the associate degree equivalents earned during the AAS or AS Veterinary Nurse degree. This program is designed to enable graduates of accredited associate degree Veterinary Nurse programs to become veterinary nurses by earning a bachelor’s degree.
In total, 127.5 credits hours are required for the Purdue BS degree in Veterinary Nursing. The BS Completion uses transfer credits from the associate degree to satisfy the competencies required for the second and third years of the BS degree, which are the clinical portion of the associate degree. In order to graduate from this program, students must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours of 30000 to 40000-level courses at the Purdue University campus, in addition to the BSVN degree requirements.
Limited class size necessitates a competitive admission process for available openings. If admitted, a credit evaluation will be completed to determine transfer credit that will be applied towards the degree.
