(135 Credits)

The DTA/MRP degree prepares students who are highly educated, technically advanced, competent and caring individuals to practice professional nursing in a variety of settings. The full-time program, located on the Mount Vernon campus, requires attendance in daytime lecture and lab classes, and both daytime and evening clinical experiences. Graduates of this program are eligible to take the examination for licensure as a registered nurse (NCLEX-RN). Passing the NCLEX-RN exam and completion of this transfer degree provide the general education and nursing courses for direct transfer with only one additional year of study to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN-BSN pathway). Baccalaureate institutions party to this agreement are: Washington State University, University of Washington, Western Washington University, Heritage University, Pacific Lutheran University, Seattle Pacific University, St. Martin’s University, and Western Governors University.

Note that admission to an RN to BSN program may be competitive; therefore, no particular GPA can guarantee admission to any specific program. Certain schools may have additional university-specific requirements for admission to the institution that are not prerequisites specifically identified in the DTA requirements.
