My View

"I transferred to nursing at Villanova University because it gives me the opportunity to work with people on an individual basis and make a difference in the lives of those who are sick."


College graduates - with a bachelor's degree in another discipline -  applying to the BSN Transfer Curriculum should visit the second degree options application page.
