How do you get nurse credit for taking a medical transcription course?

I have taken a medical transcription class and am now in nursing school, I would like to obtain credit for the courses I have already taken.

You may be able to transfer the credit, but there are several factors to consider. It doesn't mean you will be excused from any classes. Even if you don't get credit, the information will put you way ahead in your studies.

Visit your academic counselor to learn if the course you took is transferable. It is up to the school to make the determination. In the meantime, a transcription course will go a long way to helping with your nursing studies, so either way, it's valuable.

You probably can't. Medical coding and transcription is not a skill that nurses need to have. YOu might be able to use it as an elective.

You can speak with your registrar or academic advisor at the nursing school and see if he or she will accept the medical transcription class you took. If it's accepted, then you start the process of transferring the transcription course to your new institution.
