In addition, a 2+2 program will allow Fletcher students in the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program to complete the first two years of study at Fletcher and transfer all credit hours to UHC for completion of the Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN). Students transferring to UHC may complete the last two years of their course work at UHC.

The two agreements were announced and signed today by UHC President Dr. Stanton F. McNeely III, and Fletcher Technical Community College Chancellor Dr. Kristine Strickland.

The articulation agreement between UHC and Fletcher marks the first articulation agreement signed between the two schools.

“These new articulation agreements with Fletcher Technical Community College provides current Fletcher students with a solid foundation in business and nursing backgrounds the perfect opportunity to transfer to UHC,” said UHC President McNeely. Our Business Administration and Nursing programs are committed to helping students transfer to our New Orleans campus as seamlessly as possible.”
