The Bellevue College Associate in Applied Science Transfer Degree in Nursing is designed to prepare students for the national licensure examination as well as offering an opportunity for continued education. The program incorporates theoretical instruction in general education and science courses as well as clinical experience practice.
The curriculum is offered in a 6 quarter format for full time students with classes and laboratory sessions scheduled during the day. Clinical practice hours will vary depending on the availability of facilities. The quarter format is particularly fitted to students who need to balance professional and other responsibilities as the same time as attending the program part time.
Part time students can complete the curriculum in 10 quarters with classes and laboratory sessions offered on the weekends and in the evenings.
Applicants will also be expected to submit immunization records, criminal record disclosure and current CPR certification for healthcare providers.
Applicants seeking admission as full time students in the fall semester will be notified in April and May while applicants seeking admission on a part time basis will receive notification in December or January.
