Thank you for your interest in our allied health programs. Here you will find information about the variety of allied health programs offered through curriculum, continuing education, as well as a new collaborative agreement with ECU, Regionally Increasing Baccalauraeate Nurses (RIBN) which results in a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
The Associate Degree Nursing, Practical Nursing and Medical Laboratory Technology Programs are limited in the number of students that can be admitted each year, therefore, these programs are competitive-based. They have special admission requirements, application process and selection criteria. A separate application packet is required. Completed application packets are taken and reviewed by appointment on a first-come, first-served basis with phylicia Bridgers, the Allied Health Admissions Coordinator.
Most clinical sites require a criminal background check and/or drug testing prior to participation in clinical training. Denial of access to a clinical site due to criminal background or drug testing results will stop progression in the program due to failure to meet the standards required by the clinical facility. In addition, criminal background checks and drug testing may be required after graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards and employing agencies. A graduate may be disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and or/employment.
Selection for these programs is based on academic performance. Applicants compete for admission based on quality points and GPA earned by completing the general education courses required for their program of interest. Applicants who do not rank into the program will be alternates and notified according to the ranked order should space become available.
Applicants are only accepted each year for the following academic year. Students may reapply by updating their application with the Allied Health Admissions Coordinator. Beaufort County Community College does not utilize a “waiting list” for allied health programs.
