The Community College Nursing Partnership curriculum makes it possible for you to complete your ADN and BSN simultaneously through on-campus courses at the community college and online courses through KU. The program is full-time, including summer classes. Students in this program are typically enrolled in a combined total of 15 to 17 nursing credit hours each semester through both schools.

Credit for the BSN degree is earned through a combination of liberal arts prerequisites, KU nursing courses, and a portfolio review of community college nursing courses. Portfolio is the method used to award university level credit (300-400 level courses) for academic knowledge acquired through your community college nursing program. All nursing partnership students are awarded 31 credit hours via the portfolio process. Students are billed just $12.50 per portfolio course, which equates to a total of $137.50. This fee is assessed upon completion of the program.
