    The college is now accepting Assessment Technologies Institute's Test Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) entrance exams scores from three years prior to January 31, 2023, the application deadline. Students can take the TEAS up to two times per year. Students can also apply with Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) scores, although the college only offers the TEAS on site. Changes to the general education course requirements will streamline progression through the program.

    "The changes to our admission guidelines will hopefully remove some obstacles for our applicants," said Dr. Kent Dickerson, Director of Nursing and Allied Health. "These information sessions are here to help students navigate the changes to prerequisites and testing requirements."

    The college's nursing program offers smaller class sizes where students can get personalized attention. Students often find that the program at BCCC offers a good balance for family life, with some students becoming new parents while a part of the program or taking care of their parents as a part of the program.

    The deadline to apply for the LPN to RN transition program is October 15. Licensed practical nurses can take the program to build on their credentials.
