Earn affordable nursing degrees from two recognized institutions – Heidelberg University and Terra State Community College. The 1-2-1 Consortial Pathway creates a seamless transition between Heidelberg University and Terra State Community College. The program prepares students for registered nurse licensure in three years with the fourth year of post-licensure baccalaureate nursing courses to be completed online.
Heidelberg’s 1-2-1 nursing program has impacted my life by challenging me to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. I have learned to multitask and prioritize my daily tasks to be successful in work and in other aspects of my life. This program has allowed me to continue my education while I have begun my career as a nurse. It has opened many paths for me to continue my education in a graduate program such as a Pediatric NP, CRNA, or even MD. I am grateful for my time at Heidelberg University.
Year One: Pre-Nursing
You will spend your first year at Heidelberg where you will take pre-professional general education and rigorous science courses. (Prospective transfer students must complete at least one semester of full-time coursework at Heidelberg University to be eligible for the 1-2-1 Nursing program.) After successfully completing at least one full semester of coursework at Heidelberg, you will petition for admission to the nursing program at Terra.
Years Two & Three: Pre-Licensure
As a Terra student, you will participate in courses related to nursing along with a few necessary baccalaureate degree courses and electives. Upon successful completion of the nursing program, you will receive an Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS) from Terra State Community College.
Year Four: Post-Licensure
Upon successful completion of the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX), the fourth year consists of nursing courses geared to becoming a nurse leader in the global context of the nursing profession and builds upon the nursing education received in the Terra State curriculum. Students deemed eligible by their pre-licensure nursing program to sit for the NCLEX may complete up to two 400-level nursing courses at Heidelberg prior to licensure. This final year through Heidelberg is completely online. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN) from Heidelberg University.
