ADVANCED PLACEMENT (PRACTICAL NURSES) FROM PN TO ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROGRAM
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 three semesters.
LPN to ADN Transition
** New Guidelines**
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 three semesters. To be considered for the program, students must have completed a NCBON approved, or 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, NUR 112, NUR 113, and NUR 114. Students will enter into the summer semester and complete NUR 214 Nursing Transitions. They will join the traditional cohort the following fall to complete the remainder of the ADN sequencing.
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 in the Allied Health Programs Admission Application.
Student must also submit their work verification form if they graduated from their PN program more than two years ago.
Non Core Courses
Students applying to the LPN to ADN transition track must complete the same non-course classes as the traditional A.D.N. student. Below are the non-core courses that coincide with the A.D.N. program. Please note: ENG 111, BIO 168, BIO 169, and PSY 150 are all required to be completed with a grade of "C" or better before an applicant can be admitted.
- If PSY 241 has not been completed before admission into the program, the student must register for both NUR214 and PSY 241, as it is a co-requisite.
- Anatomy and physiology courses (BIO 168 and BIO 169) that the student has taken must be dated within the past five years of the student’s intended start date. (Ex. If student is applying to start in May of 2030, then their anatomy courses would need to be taken in between May of 2025 and May of 2030). The 5-year time limit will be waived for applicants with a Bachelor’s degree or an AAS degree which included two courses of equivalent anatomy/physiology in the coursework.
