Documents

Please note: All applicants to the ADN program must sign the following acknowledgement. Students at any external sites or practicum are required to follow the business, local, state, and federal requirements. This may include vaccination requirements. Bellevue College does not make any guarantees of placement for practicum or external sites to students not fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Practicum facilities and businesses may deny not fully vaccinated students or students without a booster shot(s) access to their site which may result in an inability or delay to fulfill academic requirements. Alternatives to clinical work and site placements may not be available and these students may not be able to finish the program.

The following documents must be submitted in your NursingCAS application. These include:

  • Unofficial Transcripts – for verification of prerequisite courses/GPA
  • TEAS Score Report – for verification of TEAS score
  • NAC/CNA Certification or Training Certificate of Completion – for verification of nursing assistant training
  • Bellevue College Nursing AAS-T Academic Advisement Report – for verification of course transfer

NAC/CNA Certification or Training Certificate of Completion

All applicants to the ADN program must have completed an NAC training course that teaches the basic skills needed to be a nursing assistant/nurse. Either NAC Certification or a Certificate of Completion will prove that NAC training has been completed. NAC Certification can be downloaded from the WA-DOH Provider Search. Certificate of Completion is awarded to applicants who have completed their NAC training at a community/technical college.

NAC Certification/Training Certificates of Completion are uploaded to the application in the Program Materials > Documents > Certification section of NursingCAS.

  • NAC Certification is required for applicants who have completed their training at a for-profit location instead of a community/technical college.
  • Applicants who have completed their training at a community/technical college may apply with only a Certificate of Completion, but will not receive points for NAC Certification unless they also provide WA-DOH Certification.

Note: The Degree Progress Academic Advisement Reports and What-If Reports in ctcLink are still being built and are not complete. They are not accurate yet and you will probably see some errors. These errors will not affect your graduation because the Graduation Office performs a manual review of all your degree requirements.

Updated Unofficial Transcripts (for reapplying students)

Applicants reapplying to the ADN program may have retaken or taken additional classes before applying again. Since NursingCAS allows only minimal changes between applications, they may be unable to attach an updated unofficial transcript within the Academic History section. Applicants in this situation may attach an updated transcript containing the updated class/classes within the Program Materials section.

Updated Unofficial Transcripts are uploaded to the application in the Program Materials > Documents > Certification section of NursingCAS.

  • Students who are applying for the first time should not attach any transcripts within Program Materials.
  • Reapplying students should try to update their unofficial transcripts in Academic History first.
  • Reapplying students should only submit updated unofficial transcripts within Program Materials if they cannot update them within Academic History.
    • Only submit the transcript with the updated classes. Do not include all transcripts, as they would already have been submitted within Academic History.
