articulating to the baccalaureate level are awarded a minimum of thirty (30)
upper division nursing credits in the program they are entering.
2. LPN to RN articulation model: Practical Nurses with an active
unencumbered Maryland or compact LPN license articulating to the Associate

they are entering, following successful completion of the program's transition
course(s), if required.
Transfer credits: Under the Maryland Nursing Articulation Model, credits
are awarded for transferable nursing and non-nursing courses at the college
level. Vocational-technical and non-college general education courses do not
transfer, subject to individual college policies. No more than half of the
credits for a degree can be transfer credits.
