The Fall 2018 ADN Application is now closed. Check back on June 1, 2018 for Spring 2019 ADN applications.
Please note that the application process has changed. *For complete program information and directions for submission, please refer to the Bakersfield College ADN Program Brochure.
To address our current students that may not meet the NEW Multi-criteria requirements, we will consider eligibility of students that have had continuous enrollment in the pre-requisite Biology courses (BIOL B32, BIOL B33 and BIOL B16, or their equivalent). The courses must have been taken between Summer 2016 through Spring 2018 with the first course starting no sooner than Summer 2016 and completion of the sequence no later than Spring 2018. All equivalent courses must be on the BC transcript at the time of application. There will be no exceptions. This eligibility consideration would allow students that would otherwise NOT meet the NEW Multi-criteria requirements to be ranked using the new selection process. Students who meet the above criteria will be eligible for the lottery for one semester only. If students are not selected during their initial application that meet this condition, then all future applications will be processed using the NEW Multi-criteria.
Students must complete prerequisites before being accepted into the Registered Nursing Program. Please see degree requirements for more information.
June 1-July 15 and December 1-January 15
*For complete program information, please refer to the Bakersfield College ADN Program brochure.
Students will be admitted to the program based on their scholastic eligibility and placement on a nursing assessment test as per SB 1309.
If the program is receiving Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funding, in accordance with the Jobs for Veterans Act (JVA), priority will be given to applicants with proof of military, naval, or air service and discharge under conditions other than dishonorable; students must work with Admissions and Records to determine elgibility. An eligible spouse or widow(er) will also be extended this priority status.

Conditional enrollment is the reservation of a seat prior to the ATI TEAS Assessment. Once the top ranked students have completed the assessment, a re-ranking will occur, in which the top qualified students will move from conditional enrollment to “officially accepted” in the ADN program.
All conditionally enrolled students and alternates will be required to take ATI TEAS, a state approved nursing assessment test. Students need to study and test using the ATI TEAS, 6th edition, as earlier editions are no longer accepted. Students must rank at or above 62% on their first attempt on the ATI TEAS exam to be eligible for admission into the program. Students not meeting this criteria will be offered a remediation program.
Please note that being conditionally selected as an Alternate does not guarantee selection in a future application period for the Bakersfield College ADN Program. If an Alternate applicant is not selected for the program, they must reapply. *For complete program information and directions for submission, please refer to the Bakersfield College ADN Program Brochure.
