posted August 7th, 2014 by Tricia Hussung
If you’ve started a degree program before, you most likely have transfer credits to bring with you. These credits can help take care of core requirements and allow you to finish your degree faster. But navigating the world of transfer courses can be confusing. That’s why at King University, we’ve created a transfer process that is both streamlined and easy to understand. We help you find course equivalencies and evaluate your transfer courses to take the guesswork and confusion out of the college transfer process.
Though all of our programs lend themselves to transfer students, three of our degrees stand out when it comes to transfer enrollment. Our programs, including RN to BSN degree completion, Associate of Arts and Bachelor of Business Administration, are at the top of the list when it comes to popular degree programs for transfer students. Read on to find out why!
#1: RN to BSN: Do More With Your Nursing Career
King University’s online Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program is designed for registered nurses who want to advance their education by earning a BSN qualification in a flexible and convenient format. It includes 32 credit hours of core nursing courses and can be completed in as few as 16 months—and this timeframe can be accelerated with the addition of transfer credits. This program leads you to personal and professional development as a nurse and helps you better meet the needs of your patients.
Our RN to BSN online degree is delivered completely online, but clinical aspects of courses involve participation in a community service project. This opportunity gives you the best of both worlds: the benefits of online learning combined with the hands-on experience you need to succeed. Professionals like you who graduate from this program can increase their earnings and build their careers in areas such as:
- Primary care management
- Nursing staff development
- Case management
- Clinical management
- Program administration
As part of this program, you’ll complete relevant and advanced coursework in areas such as research methods, ethics, public health and cultural studies. These valuable topics will help you raise your level of patient care and increase your value in today’s changing healthcare workplace.
#2: Associate of Arts: Earn a Flexible Degree That Fits Your Life
Our Associate of Arts degree is designed for high school graduates who are also busy professionals. It gives you the chance to begin your college education on your own schedule. We’ve designed this degree to educate professionals with a core foundation that will help you increase your overall knowledge and advance your career. The program also sets you up for further study at the bachelor’s level should you choose to continue your education.
The curriculum for this course of study provides you with knowledge and skills in various areas, from presentations to communication and diversity issues. Additionally, you can transfer all the credits from this program directly to one of our bachelor’s programs. You’ll also get the chance to concentrate in whichever of the following areas match your academic and professional goals:
- Criminal justice
- General studies
- Information technology
Give your career a strong foundation with our Associate of Arts program. It is structured in five-week terms and comprises 60 credit hours. Designed to be completed in 20 months, this program can be completed in even less time when you transfer previously earned credits to King.
#3: Bachelor of Business Administration: Meet the Demands of Today’s Business World
The online undergraduate business administration program is another popular degree for our transfer students. It gives you the opportunity to expand your business knowledge skills and prepares professionals like you for various career paths within the business industry, including those that require excellent communication and critical-thinking skills. Holding a bachelor’s degree in business is important if you are looking to pursue a career in management or administration.
