Note:  The UWF Dr. D.W. McMillan BSN Nursing program allows students to apply and have their transcripts evaluated for transfer credit to determine remaining general education and prerequisite course requirements.  Based upon that audit, and working with their program advisor, students will then have a clear roadmap as to their progress in meeting all of the academic requirements remaining. Application to the Pre-Licensure program should be done as early as necessary to allow students to complete the remaining coursework to be eligible for the Fall 2019 enrollment period.  Per Air Force AY2019 guide, NECP applicants must be fully accepted into the University program no later than April 19, 2019, which is when the Air Force Selection Board convenes.
