The following courses have been approved by the Yuba College Nursing Department to meet content equivalency for NURS 36 (Pathophysiology: Understanding Disease). Should you choose to take this course outside of Yuba College, only courses from the lists below may be used to satisfy this pre-admission requirement. It is the student’s responsibility to contact each school regarding their specific application, admission, and enrollment procedures.
The Yuba College Nursing Department strongly recommends students complete a 4 credit Pathophysiology course in order to meet content and credit equivalency. Strong grades in 4 credit courses also improve individual course GPA, resulting in higher point values being awarded in Criterion 2 of our new Merit Based Admission Process. However, the following 3 credit courses have also been approved by the Yuba College Nursing Department to satisfy this pre-admission requirement.
If you are still interested in taking a course which is not included on these lists, you may request a student petition and apply for equivalency prior to enrollment. Please call 530/741-6705 to request the petition. You must include the name of the school, the course ID, a copy of the course description, and an official, sealed transcript with your petition. You will be notified directly if your petition is granted or denied. You may provide a copy of that petition to serve as the course equivalency.
