ADN Program Details
Bellingham Technical College offers a program for nurses who have graduated from a PN Program and have a current Washington State LPN license. The Registered Nursing LPN to RN Program at BTC was created and approved with the intent to serve Whatcom County employer needs and to create a pathway specifically for BTC’s PN graduates to move into high-wage, high-demand career opportunities. Therefore, applicants who are former BTC PN graduates who complete the admissions process will be prioritized into available RN Program seats.
The LPN to RN program prepares the student for licensure as a Registered Nurse and awards an AAS-T degree. Applicants should be aware that the Program requires independent study. Students who complete the Program will have met the educational requirements needed to apply for permission to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN).
