QCC/Hunter Dual/Joint Degree Program:

A.A.S. in Nursing (QCC) Leading to the B.S. in Nursing (Hunter College)

Clinical students in NU 101 may apply for the Dual/joint Degree Program in Nursing with Hunter College. Admission to the program is extremely competitive and will be based on the student’s GPA and overall academic work. A student must receive a faculty recommendation indicating a strong clinical performance in NU-101. In addition to the courses required for their A.A.S. degree, students will be encouraged to complete additional liberal arts, science, and humanities courses that can be applied to the B.S. degree.  Students will be guided in the selection of these courses by an advisor to maximize the courses that meet the general education, as well as the pluralism and diversity, graduation requirements for Hunter College and the HBSON, thereby avoiding potential repetition of credits.
