Parkersburg, W.Va. (February 2, 2021) – The WVU Parkersburg Nursing and Health Sciences division has received news that the university will now accept new transfer courses from BridgeValley Community and Technical College and Marshall University.
“By accepting these courses as transfer equivalency, our students will be ready to take the entrance exam, the HESI A2 and have a better chance of successfully being admitted to the program,” said Dr. Kathy Frum, chairperson of the Nursing and Health Sciences Division.
WVU Parkersburg now accepts the following transfer courses from Bridgevalley Community and Technical College:
BIOL 201 – Human Anatomy and Physiology I
BIOL 202 – Human Anatomy and Physiology II
The following transfer courses are also accepted from Marshall University:
BSC 227 – Human Anatomy
BSC 228 Human Physiology
PHY 201 College Physics I
PHY 211 University Physics I
Dr. Frum anticipates that the quality of the applicants to the program will be enhanced as well as the increase in enrollment numbers in the Nursing and Health Sciences division. Students will continue to be prepared for the HESI A2; however, with the addition of the accepted transfer courses, students will be even more prepared to pass on their first attempt.
“Accepting these courses permits transfer students to seamlessly continue their education with us, particularly in our health sciences programs. It also reaffirms the quality of higher education provided across West Virginia and at home at WVU Parkersburg,” said Provost Chad Crumbaker.
