Transferring Into the Nursing Program

To qualify for transfer into the NOVA Nursing Program a student must:

  • have successfully completed at least one semester of an accredited RN program.
  • be in good standing at their current school and have a letter of recommendation from their Dean.
  • meet all current NOVA program requirements.
  • have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.
  • complete a transfer interview with the Dean of Nursing or designee.

Admission is not guaranteed. An applicant who has been out of a nursing program for over one calendar year must apply as a new student. 25% of the degree must be completed at NOVA, therefore transfer for only the last semester is not allowed.
