ADN Application Instructions

The Bellevue College Nursing Program has updated the list of documents you need to submit on NursingCAS with your application. Because NursingCAS has fields for employment, volunteerism, and criminal/conviction history disclosure, you no longer need to include a résumé, volunteer and employment verification forms, or the criminal/conviction history disclosure form. Please do complete these parts of the application thoroughly.
