Welcome to Bellevue College Nursing Program!
Our program prepares graduates for beginning level clinical practice as Registered Nurses through an Associate in Applied Science Transfer Degree in Nursing. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The license to practice as a Registered Nurse in the state of Washington is granted by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission.
The degree curriculum is designed so that prerequisite and general education classes are completed prior to the two years of nursing course work. The program is selective admission with full time lecture classes scheduled during the day and clinical hours scheduled during day and evening hours.
Nursing education is a dynamic process of encouraging the development of competence, critical thinking and collaboration. The student/faculty relationship provides an opportunity to access educational services that support professional development and enhance personal growth.
