Wilkes Community College to App State BSN 3+1 pathway

Earn two degrees and save on tuition and fees by completing your first three years at Wilkes Community College and your final year at Appalachian State University.

This 3+1 pathway allows you to complete your Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) at Wilkes Community College (WCC) and then earn your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from App State Online in as little as one year. Admitted students have the option to choose how quickly they want to finish the program – App State Online offers 1, 2 and 3-year RN to BSN options.

You will benefit from resources shared between App State and WCC. You will work with advisors from both institutions in order to keep you on track to earn your ADN in three years and then complete your bachelor’s degree online at App State while working as a nurse.
