Saint Xavier University and Richard J. Daley College sign dual admission articulation agreement for nursing

Provides smooth transfer for nursing students between schools

Chicago (May 1, 2008) The presidents of Saint Xavier University and Richard J. Daley College have signed a Dual Admission/Articulation Agreement to provide smoother transfer for nursing students between the two schools. 

Under the agreement, Richard J. Daley College students earning an associate in applied science degree in nursing can complete their bachelor of science degree in nursing at Saint Xavier’s Orland Park campus. Student progress is facilitated through timely completion of program requirements and improved sequencing of learning experiences. 

“We are pleased that this cooperative relationship will support a smooth transfer experience, and build on community college and university learning experiences for nursing students at Richard J. Daley College to complete their baccalaureate degrees,” said SXU President Judith A. Dwyer, Ph.D. 

Saint Xavier has similar agreements with Moraine Valley Community College, Joliet Junior College and Prairie State College.  

“This dual-admission agreement will allow Richard J. Daley College students to move more quickly into baccalaureate course work and bring special skills to their patients,” said SXU School of Nursing Interim Dean Kay Thurn, Psy.D., R.N. “This is especially important given the significant shortage of nurses facing this country.”
