RN to BSN program - Bellevue College
Earn your BSN!
This flexible RN-BSN program – in partnership with Bellevue College – is nationally accredited and state-recognized. And it’s designed especially for working nurses like you!
The program is part-time or full-time, low-residency, and has a flexible hybrid model. Training Fund members have priority acceptance.
You may also be eligible for Tuition Assistance Priority Enrollment if:
- You have 1 year of service with your employer
- AND have already been accepted into Bellevue College’s RN to BSN program.
Applicants to Bellevue College’s RN to BSN program must meet the following admission requirements:
- Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from a regionally accredited institution. Must include at least 35 quarter credits in nursing.
- A cumulative GPA of 2.0 in all college courses.
- A minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in in all required courses for the ADN.
- Have passed a college level statistics course that includes inferential statistics. Course must be equivalent to 5-credits.
- A current, unrestricted licensure as a registered nurse in Washington state. Students in final year of an associate degree nursing program may be admitted, but must take and pass the NCLEX-RN by the end of their second quarter of the program. Successful passing of NCLEX earns the student 45 college credits.
- Must have at least one year of recent (within the past three years) clinical experience. ADN clinical experience may be substituted for students applying directly from an ADN program
The program costs approximately $10,500. Training Fund members can qualify for Tuition Assistance to cover almost all the cost. Some costs (including additional college related fees) will need to be covered by the member.

“I just got accepted into the RN to BSN program through the Training Fund at Bellevue College. The Training Fund helped me with tuition. The process was easy: Fill out your application, submit your stuff, and you’re going to be guaranteed a slot in the program with Bellevue College. I’m like, ‘Yes, here we go! I’m ready!‘
The Training Fund is awesome. I cannot believe you guys did this for us. And that’s fantastic!”

Navigators look out for their members
“My Training Fund Navigator was really great at counseling me. He walked me through the whole process….applying to the Training Fund, qualifying for Tuition Assistance, and then sending me resources for scholarships to keep my costs as minimal as possible. When I was unsure about things, he would reach out on my behalf to help me navigate. He definitely went above and beyond!”
