Blue Ridge Community and Technical College Associate of Science Degree in Nursing prepares students to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses to become professional care givers.

The program runs on a limited admission basis admitting 24 qualified candidates in the fall and spring semesters. The number of students admitted into the program is monitored by the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Nurses.

The program gives priority to students with the highest academic scores because of the competitive nature of admission to the academically rigorous program.

  • Complete Application documents to be registered at Blue Ridge
  • Official high school transcripts or GED equivalency certificate
  • Official transcripts for all college level course work
  • TEAS V scores
  • Complete (or plan to complete) all pre-requisite courses

Admission to the program will be based on academic records and overall GPA. All applicants need to complete all pre-requisite courses with a minimum of a ‘C’ grade and an overall cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Applicants will be notified of the status of their admission by letter. The school does not maintain a waiting list with the list of applicants dissolved on the first day of the semester.

Applicants accepted into the program will be required to submit to a criminal background check as students convicted of a felony or misdemeanor may be denied the opportunity to be licensed.
