Experiential Learning, developed primarily for working adults, is designed to recognize the academic value of what students have learned through experiences outside the college classroom. Credit for experiential learning may result from work experience, employment-related training programs and seminars, volunteer work, travel, military service or intensive self-directed study. If students have gained BC course equivalent knowledge, competencies, and/or skills as a result of prior learning experiences, they may be able to earn academic credit through the Experiential Learning for lower division and upper division coursework.
Experiential learning credits are not available for all BC courses. Students who have been admitted and who have decided on an academic program may challenge courses through Experiential Learning. Students can obtain information from the academic department(s) responsible for the course(s) that the student wishes to challenge. Students who receive permission to challenge a course from an authorized faculty assessor must pay the required assessment fees and satisfactorily pass a faculty-administered learning assessment before credit can be awarded.
Each BSN course will be taught in an eight or six week session. You will be taking two to four BSN courses at a time. It is best to review the RN-BSN sample course schedule as it does not follow the traditional college calendar.
Broward College accepts transfer credits from all regionally accredited institutions. Check with your institution for current accreditation status.
