3 WHAT IS CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT? An innovative program for students who: Have earned a baccalaureate degree in another discipline; Desire to enter professional nursing and have been accepted into an Applied Associate of Science program in a VCCS school; Aspire to obtain the baccalaureate degree in nursing (BSN) in a timely manner; Need to remain in their own local community.

While enrolled in the AAS curriculum, students are enrolled in the RN-to-BSN courses. During each of the four semesters of the AAS curriculum During the summer between the first and second year The program is completed during the summer following the second year of the AAS program

The student will be withdrawn from the concurrent enrollment curriculum if A grade C or lower is earned in either the AAS or BSN program courses There is loss of student in good standing status in the AAS courses A failing grade is received for any of the nursing courses in either program
13 STUDENT PROGRESSION A student withdrawn from the concurrent enrollment program may seek readmission to the ODU RN>BSN curriculum upon completion of AAS program and attainment of an unencumbered RN license.
