WSU/MCPHS Articulation Agreement

Worcester State University and Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) have a formal affiliation agreement that admits a limited number of students into an articulated program that begins with eighty credits at WSU in the Community Health/Pre-Nursing program and ends with the accelerated Bachelor of Nursing program on the MCPHS Worcester or Manchester (NH) campus. At the end of the appropriate forty credits at MCPHS, the student transfers those credits back to Worcester State University and earns a Bachelor of Science in Community Health. The student then completes the additional appropriate number of credits at MCPHS to earn the B.S. in Nursing at MCPHS.
