LPN to ADN Transition
The LPN to ADN Transition program at BCCC offers students who have completed the Licensed Practical Nursing diploma the ability to utilize their education and work experience to finish the Associate Degree Nursing program in four semesters. To be considered for the program, students must have completed a regionally accredited Practical Nursing Program within two years of application date (official transcript required) or have verification of 12 months of employment within the past 2 years as a LPN functioning in a role requiring practical nursing skills. Each applicant will be evaluated and awarded points using the specified criteria that can be found on the Allied Health Admissions page. Those applicants with highest rank will be selected to continue in the admissions process. Space is contingent upon how many seats are available because that number fluctuates every year. Students accepted into the program are given credit for NUR 111 and complete ADN course sequencing with their cohort.
Admission to a nursing program is competitive and based upon the selection of those candidates who possess the ability to succeed in a demanding academic program. The number of students accepted in the nursing programs cannot exceed the maximum number approved by the NC Board of Nursing and available clinical space.
Each applicant will be evaluated and awarded points using the criteria below. Those applicants with highest rank will be selected to continue in the admissions process including a physical, immunization records, and CPR requirements. If two or more students have the same rank, GPA will determine admission. Nursing application date will be the determining factor if rank and GPA are the same.
Academic Performance (200 points)
- Grade from NUR 101 (or first semester PN class).
- GPA from first semester non-core general ed classes (BIO 168** and PSY 150)
- Divide GPA by .02
- Any of the following classes can be added to the application for additional GPA points: BIO 169**, PSY 241, CIS 110, Humanities elective, ENG 111, ENG 112 (or 114). If these are not completed prior to Spring entry, the student will have to take these in order, in accordance with the ADN Curriculum Chart.
Students in nursing programs must achieve a “C” or above in all curriculum courses. This includes all nursing and nonnursing courses in the Associate Degree Nursing and Practical Nursing curriculums.
** Completed within the past 5 years. Students who have taken BIO
168/169 as part of an earned associate's degree (or higher) will have
the 5 year timeline waived for the application.
