BSN Program Information
General Education Waiver (2011)
All foundation and non nursing major courses must be completed by the end of the spring semester. Three general education courses other than those that satisfy foundation or courses in the major (see checksheet) may be completed while enrolled in the upper division nursing major.
CS 1410 Challenge Exam
Some Appalachian State University students may take a challenge exam in the Nursing office in lieu of CS 1410 if their schedule does not permit them to take the course. Students must be cleared by Mrs. Shirley Harris (Academic Advisor for prelicensure nursing students) or Mrs. Kim Priode in the Nursing Department prior to taking the exam. The challenge exam will cover Word processing, Excel and Power Point skills. Students will have 90 minutes to complete the exam. Students who pass this exam will not receive college credit; however, the course requirement of CS 1410 will be waived. For further information, contact Teri Goodman at 828-262-8039
