Eastern Mennonite University at Lancaster and HACC sign nursing program articulation agreement

Eastern Mennonite University at Lancaster and Harrisburg Area Community College signed an articulation agreement that offers a seamless transition from HACC’s nursing program into Eastern Mennonite University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at the Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The agreement, signed during a formal ceremony held at the Eastern Mennonite University site, ensures transfer of credit to Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program upon completion of an associate degree in nursing at HACC.

In Pennsylvania, associate degree nursing graduates articulate to universities for a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree. Articulation is different from transferring. While transferring between schools involves the transfer of individual courses, articulation indicates that a block of credits are awarded based on having an R.N. license.

EMU will accept at least 74 college level credits from HACC if applicants meet specific admissions criteria, which include maintaining a minimum GPA of 2.0 or greater as required by the HACC nursing program.

“The degree completion pathway represented by this agreement promises to support the educational and career goals of nursing students, providing resources and information they need to utilize their time and tuition dollars effectively and efficiently, “ says Dr. Mary Jensen, Associate Provost, EMU at Lancaster.

“HACC is proud of our nursing graduates and the level of high quality health care they bring to the community.  We applaud the collaborative pathway between HACC and EMU that facilitates a seamless academic progression for HACC nursing alumni to earn a BSN,” said HACC President John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D.
