The Associate in Nursing DTA/MRP is a pathway for students to move from the community college to a university as a senior student. This pathway allows for seamless progression to baccalaureate education. A candidate for the Associate in Nursing DTA/MRP degree must complete 60 support nursing program credits and 75 core nursing program credits to be eligible for completion of this degree. It's highly recommended that students meet with a counselor or academic advisor at SCC or SFCC on a regular basis to ensure that requirements for this program are being met.
Completion of the required nursing support courses does not ensure admission into the Nursing program.
Students must complete all the nursing required support courses prior to starting the nursing program. Students may apply to the nursing program after completing 45 credits. The courses that must be completed prior to application are: BIOL& 160, CHEM& 121, BIOL& 241, BIOL& 242, BIOL& 260, ENGL& 101, PSYC& 100, PSYC& 200, and MATH& 146. The remaining 15 credits may be taken while waiting for acceptance to the program. Acceptance will be conditional if all required nursing support courses are not completed prior to the start of the nursing program.
A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all nursing support courses with minimum GPA of 2.5 in each nursing support course is required to move to the competitive scoring process. Only nursing support courses will be considered in calculation of the GPA.
Completion of the DTA will satisfy requirements for direct transfer with only one additional year of study to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at four-year institutions in Washington State. Please double check the college requirements with any other school to ensure they accept the direct transfer agreement. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor or academic advisor to ensure the college they choose does not have additional requirements.
Please refer to the nursing program admission requirements as they may have changed.
