Nursing Programs

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.
