Program transition announced

A.S. program in Nursing transitioning to B.S. program in Nursing

The national picture of nursing education is changing. As a leader in the field, Penn State is transitioning the associate of science (A.S.) degree to a baccalaureate of science (B.S.) degree in Nursing at the Altoona, Erie, Fayette, Mont Alto, and Worthington Scranton campuses. This transition aligns with the future of nursing practice and projected employment patterns.

For more information, see the Bachelor of Science Degree page.

If you have never attended Penn State, you should apply through the Undergraduate Admissions Office.


Applications for the A.S. program are no longer accepted. Please see the B.S. Program Admission Information page for information about admission to the B.S. program.
