James Rumsey Technical Institute does not allow the transfer of students between programs.
The Practical Nursing program is the only course of study that maintains a policy for the transfer of credits earned at another institution.
Students who have successfully completed college coursework in Anatomy and Physiology, Human Growth and Development, Nutrition, and/or Pharmacology may be eligible to receive credit. The following is the policy listed in the Practical Nursing Handbook:
