Co-Enrollment Partnerships 

VCU School of Nursing, John Tyler Community College (JTCC), Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) and Rappahannock Community College (RCC) recognized the need to facilitate completion of a baccalaureate degree among graduates of associate degree programs. The VCU SON has collaborated with each school to develop an innovative Co-Enrollment program for the RN to B.S. program.

With Co-Enrollment, students are concurrently enrolled in VCU’s online RN-B.S. and their community college program. Students register for one VCU course (3 credits) during each of their final 2 semesters at the community college. By the time they finish they are 12 credits ahead compared to a student who is not in the co-enrollment program. Full scholarships are available. 

Eligibility Requirements 

  • Complete a minimum of 41 credit hours of VCU RN-B.S. prerequisite and general education courses prior to the beginning of the fall semester of the final year at John Tyler Community College, Southside Virginia Community College or Rappahannock Community College; 
  • Earn a minimum cumulative college-level grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale; 
  • Earn a minimum grade of "B" in all required John Tyler, Southside Virginia or Rappahannock Community College courses;
  • Earn a minimum grade of "C" or better in the required prerequisite and general education courses (see admission requirements);
  • Apply to the VCU School of Nursing by the posted application deadline (see application instructions)

We encourage you to contact your community college advisor or contact us at vcu_nurse@vcu.edu if you have questions.
