Representatives from Olivet Nazarene University and Waubonsee Community College held a “Partnership Celebration” this week to honor the RN to BSN Program Articulation Agreement between the two institutions that was signed in spring 2015.

Suzette Murray, Assistant Vice President of Career/Technical Education, and Dr. Jess Toussaint, Dean of Health Professions/Public Service, provided the welcome and introductions.

The agreement allows for a smooth transition for students transferring between the two institutions and maximizes allowable transfer of credit: Waubonsee students who complete the Associate in Applied Science Nursing degree can apply it seamlessly towards completion of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at Olivet Nazarene University.
