T​he Department of Nursing PhD Guide contains important information regarding policies including academic progression for students admitted from 2006-2012.  Students entering the PhD nursing program use the guide published the year that they are admitted.

College-Level Exam Program Option

College-Level Exam Program (CLEP) exams are a viable option for satisfying course requirements of the Bachelor of Science in nursing programs. Applicants to and students of a SONDH undergraduate nursing program must consult with a SONDH Office of Students Services advisor regarding the use and limitations of non-graded course equivalencies to meet current graduation requirements. Students who successfully pass a CLEP exam will be awarded college credit toward a Bachelor of Science in nursing degree and, therefore, will not need to take the respective required coursework.
