The minimum number of credits that must be completed at Towson is 30; this may vary depending on the number of credits transferred from the community college. To ensure successful progress through the nursing major, students will need to complete General Chemistry, Nutrition and Microbiology. If these courses were not part of the associate’s degree, they must be completed prior to acceptance into the nursing major -- which could add additional credits to the program.
