The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) and Howard Community College (HCC) have signed an agreement of dual admission ensuring a smooth transition from HCC’s Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program to UMSON’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.

The agreement will allow students to apply and be admitted to UMSON’s BSN program while in HCC’s ADN program. Students will receive transfer credits from UMSON for coursework completed at HCC and will be granted special student status to take UMSON courses while still working on their associate degree.

Georgene Butler, PhD, professor and dean of health sciences at HCC, tells UMaryland.edu, “The dual admission partnership is a tremendous value to Howard Community College students, allowing them to progress toward their associate degree and begin the process of attaining their baccalaureate degree in nursing. This new educational option will make the path to a bachelor’s degree more affordable for students and their families.”

The dual admission agreement is an effort by both nursing schools to increase the number of qualified nursing candidates. The agreement also helps UMSON further its mission of the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the AARP to advance comprehensive health care change.
