Massachusetts Nursing Education Transfer Compact

The goals of the Nursing Education Transfer Compact are to: – Create a seamless, cost effective, timely, and transparent pathway from the community college AD/N to the BS/N degree at a state university or the University of Massachusetts; – Make the process of transferring credits from the Associate Degree in Nursing to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing transparent for students and administrators. – Reduce the overall time for transfer students to complete the BS/N; – Eliminate any unnecessary duplication of coursework, thereby reducing costs for students; and -Clarify curriculum pathways among the community colleges and state universities and UMass to simplify the selection of courses and eliminate the need for inter-campus articulation agreements.
