USF, Ivy Tech sign articulation agreement

The University of Saint Francis signed an articulation agreement with Ivy Tech Community College on Feb. 11. The purpose of the articulation agreement was to provide a mechanism for graduates of the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program at Ivy Tech Community College to articulate into the RN-MSN sequence of the Master of Science in nursing program at the University of Saint Francis. The University of Saint Francis will reserve 25 percent of openings in the RN-MSN sequence for ASN graduates from Ivy Tech who meet the articulation admission criteria of the Master of Science in nursing program. All Indiana Ivy Tech ASN graduates are eligible.

The signing with Ivy Tech Community College was the fourth articulation agreement between the two schools. USF has a total of 12 articulation agreements covering more than 100 programs and courses with six institutions of higher learning. Other institutions with established agreements are Midwestern University of Chicago, Grace College in Warsaw, Ind., Logan University in Missouri, University of Findlay of Ohio and Ancilla College in Plymouth, Ind. In addition, USF has agreements with multiple hospitals for specialty courses.
