* GE Requirements: American Institutions, Fine Arts, and Humanities. Three (3) credits each.

** Associate Degrees require a qualitative literacy course i.e. Math 1030 or higher; however, students transferring to a BSN or higher nursing program will need Math 1040.

An Associate Degree is required to take the National Council of State Boards of Nursing exam (NCLEX-RN). The total number of required credits for a Snow College Associate Degree in Nursing is 72 credits. The Snow College Associate of Science in Nursing does not require the Oral Communication or the Physical Education components that are required for an Associate of Science degree. Please meet with a Snow College Academic Advisor to make sure all requirements for an ASN will be met by the time of graduation from the RN program.
