Are your programs accredited?

Yes, we are accredited! Our entire institution is accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). This includes our RN to BSN Completion program, Professional Nursing (RN), Bridge programs, and Practical Nursing (LPN) program.

Ask A Question
Do your programs have additional help if students need it?

Yes! As long as the student is trying and wants to succeed, our instructors will do everything in their power to help students achieve their goals. We offer Success Labs and one-on-one or small group tutoring with instructors, and more if additional help is needed.

Ask A Question
Can I fill out the application online?

If you’re applying for our RN to BSN completion program, the application is available on our website here.

If you are applying for our seated programs, you will need to print the official application and fill it out. You can bring it with you to your admissions appointment. Simply click here and print.

Ask A Question
What is the deadline for your application period?

The first round deadline to apply for the 2023 Professional Nursing (RN) program is May 8, 2023. You can still apply for the program after then and have a chance at starting the program in the fall. 

All other programs do not have a deadline to apply; however, the sooner you apply and complete the admissions checklist, the better your chances are at receiving a seat.

We fill our programs, excluding the RN program, in the order of applicants who become qualified for the program. During the qualification period, all of the items on the Admissions Checklist must be completed by the applicant, the college, and external agencies. Once the checklist is marked complete, the applicant’s file will be reviewed for qualification into their desired program. If the applicant qualifies, they will be accepted if seats are available, or added to the waitlist if all seats are taken. If the applicant does not qualify, admissions counseling is recommended for next steps.

Ask A Question
I graduated from one of the programs at BTC and I’m ready to advance my career now. Do I still need to take the entrance exams?

If you took the Wonderlic, TEAS, or ATI predictor exam (does not include the ATI predictor test taken in the program) less than 1 year ago then you do not have to retake the exam.

Ask A Question
How do transfer credits work?
After starting your application with us, if you have college credits from another school, you may request an official transcript be sent to us from that institution. Once we receive your BTC application and official transcripts from your previous institution, our registrar will evaluate your transcript and we will let you know which classes, if any, are eligible for transfer.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept transfer credits for our core nursing classes; only general education classes will be evaluated. For transfer credit eligibility, please see our Student Catalog for a list of requirements.
