Pellissippi State Community College and Herzing University have developed and signed a transfer articulation agreement that allows graduates of the college’s Nursing program to seamlessly transfer into the university’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program as juniors.
Pellissippi State President L. Anthony Wise Jr. and Herzing University Associate Vice President of Community Partnerships Thomas P. Perin Sr., working through Herzing University Provost and Chief Academic Officer Kitty Kautzer, signed the articulation agreement on the college’s Strawberry Plains Campus on Wednesday, Feb. 22.
“Pellissippi State is committed to creating and expanding clear pathways for our students to continue their education or start a career,” said Wise. “This is the latest of many transfer agreements Pellissippi State has made with universities in the last several years to streamline continued education for our graduates. We thank Herzing University for working with us on this pathway.”
Herzing University is a private, nonprofit university with campuses across the United States. While Herzing University has opened a new campus near Nashville, its Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is offered online, which allows students to continue working as registered nurses while preparing for the next chapter in their career.
“Herzing University is proud to partner with Pellissippi State Community College and appreciates Dr. Wise and his team for working with us to establish this partnership,” said Perin. “This articulation agreement is a good fit for graduating Nursing students from Pellissippi State.”
