College Credit Plus Logo Health Pathway

These represent sample a sample pathways toward the following Health Science Programs: Practical Nursing Certificate (PNUR), Registered Nursing Degree (RNUR), Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTAP), Physical Therapist Assistant (PHTA), Respiratory Care (RESP), and Radiological Sciences (RADS) at NC State. For this sample, all courses apply to the RNUR. The courses also apply to many other allied health programs at NC State, but it is important to talk with an NC State advisor if seeking another allied health program. It is also important to comprehend all program admission criteria, including the TEAS V exam, when considering these programs. Students can access health program admission criteria on the degree web pages.  These courses, with noted exceptions, are also guaranteed to transfer to any public Ohio college under the Ohio Transfer Module (general education) or as applicable to a health-science related major. This is just a sample. There are numerous courses that could apply toward this pathway, and with noted exceptions they do not have to be taken in this order.

1 NCs State's Nursing and Allied Health programs, with the exception of RADS, require a minimum grade of 77% (C+) in all general education and science courses. RADS requires a minimum grade of 70% (C-). These standards are driven by external accreditation requirements.

2 Ohio Transfer Module (OTM):  Transferable general education courses regardless of major. Students should consult the state Transfer Module Grid for limits on credit hours by area that are guaranteed general education transfer. Ohio Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG): Technical courses transferable to certain major areas above and beyond OTM courses. In limited instances a course could have both an OTM and TAG label.

3 Placement: proof of college readiness in English (ACT English >=18 or Accuplacer Sentence Skills >=88). If these cut-off scores are not achieved, students have a secondary option of providing evidence of a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above in high school courses with a B or above in the 11th grade English class OR a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above in high school courses and the recommendation of the last English teacher. 

4 Placement: proof of college readiness in math (ACT Math Score >=22 or Accuplacer College Level Math >=55). If these cut-off scores are not achieved, students have a secondary option of providing evidence of a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above in high school courses with a B or above in a higher-level mathematics class (Algebra II or above).

5 Prerequisite: Chemistry (CHEM 1030) has a prerequisite of high school chemistry or CHEM 1010 at NC State (minimum grade of C- for either). This further requires proof of college readiness in math (ACT Math score >=21 or Accuplacer of XX).

6 Prerequisite: Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 1010) is a pre-requisite to Human Growth and Development (PSYC 2010).

7 BIOL 2751 requires proof of college readiness in math (ACT Math =>21 or Accuplacer College Level Math >= 45), writing (ACT English >=18 or Accuplacer Sentence Skills >=88), and reading (ACT Reading score =>21 or Accuplacer Reading score of 80). Moreover, it requires completion of high school chemistry or NC State's Introductory Chemistry (CHEM 1010) with a minimum grade of C-. Finally, BIOL 2751 is a prerequisite to BIOL 2752.
