Transfer Options

 

ASSOCIATE OF ARTS OREGON TRANSFER (A.A.O.T.) degree, a non-designated block transfer degree designed for the student who intends to transfer to a four-year college or university within the Oregon University System (OUS). Students need to work closely with an academic advisor to plan a course of study at BMCC.

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (A.S.) degree, a non-designated college transfer degree designed for students whose program requirements do not fit A.A.O.T. degree patterns. This degree does not always “block transfer” to Oregon colleges.

OREGON TRANSFER MODULE (O.T.M.), a one-year module designed to complete a portion of students’ general education requirements and is transferable to any OUS institution. Upon transfer of credits, the receiving institution may specify additional course work that is required for a major or degree requirements or to make up the difference between the O.T.M. and the institution’s total general education requirements.

This module is an excellent choice for the student who is planning to transfer to a four-year institution and either is undecided on a major or will be majoring in a program of study with specific lower division requirements that are not offered at BMCC. With the one-year module, a student can complete most general education requirements and then transfer to the four-year institution, where he or she can complete the remaining lower division requirements.

Transfer courses offered at BMCC parallel freshman and sophomore courses offered by four-year colleges and universities. If you are planning to seek a degree at a specific four-year college or university, you should become familiar with the requirements of the proposed major program at that institution. BMCC advisors are available to assist you in this planning process.

In addition to the requirements of a major, OUS institutions require that the student earn credit hours in each of the major academic divisions: arts and letters (language, literature, and the arts), the social sciences, sciences and mathematics, and writing. These are typically referred to as general education requirements, or general university requirements. Students at BMCC who complete the A.A.O.T. as outlined will meet these OUS lower division general education requirements. Specific departmental requirements at OUS institutions can be found in the catalog of the college or university to which the student intends to transfer. OUS institutions generally will accept up to 120 credit hours of lower division course work from Oregon’s community colleges.

A.A.S./Nursing

 Health Services

Intended Program Outcomes:

This two-year A.A.S. degree in nursing will prepare the student to sit for testing and licensure as a registered nurse and to be effective in the workplace in the following areas:

  • Basing nursing activities on practice as dictated by the theories and concepts from nursing and the natural and behavioral sciences, thereby effectively employing assessment and intervention skills, caring and relational skills for client advocacy, and teaching skills for health promotion and restoration
  • Working dependently and interdependently with qualified health professionals and members of the health team in defining, planning, implementing, and evaluating the total health plan for individuals consistent with their graduating scope of practice and skills in communication, cultural respect, management, leadership, and teaching
  • Being accountable for his/her own decisions, judgments, and nursing practice by using critical thinking skills, moral and ethical responsibility, and responsibilities management skills
  • Exhibiting personal and professional growth by using critical thinking and knowledge integration skills to acquire new knowledge and new experiences with the continual expansion of scientific knowledge and technology

Registered nurses (RNs) use their knowledge, skills, and problem-solving abilities to help individuals, families, and groups with health needs. RNs care for and work with people to help them become healthier or to regain health after illness or surgery. Nurses teach health practices to clients and other health care providers, and frequently supervise the work of nursing assistants and practical nurses. RNs also administer medications and perform treatments for patients. Nurses work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, long-term care, schools, industry, clinics, and patients’ homes.

About the Program
BMCC is a member of the Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education (OCNE) and offers a competency-based curriculum jointly developed by nursing faculties from the eight community college and Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) consortium partners. The core competencies address the need for nurses to be skilled in clinical judgment and critical thinking; evidence-based practice; relationship-centered care; interdisciplinary collaboration; assisting individuals and families in self-care practices for promotion of health and management of chronic and acute illness; end-of-life care; and teaching, delegation, leadership and supervision of caregivers.

Acceptance to the program allows for co-admission to BMCC and OHSU nursing programs. The program is designed as four years of full-time study, with the first year (although it may take longer than one year) devoted to prerequisite/preparatory courses (48 credit minimum) required for admission to the restricted (limited) admission Nursing program. Successful completion of the second and third years leads to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Nursing degree offered by BMCC. The OCNE curriculum continues for four additional terms leading to a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing (BSN) offered by OHSU. See the BMCC Nursing Sample Program of Study at http://www.bluecc.edu/department_nursing.

The first five terms after admission to the BMCC Nursing program are identical for the associate and bachelor’s degree courses. Term six offers students the ability to complete the AAS degree at BMCC and provides the educational eligibility for NCLEX-RN licensure testing or can be used to begin the coursework for the BSN. The latter option allows transfer to an OHSU campus without additional competitive application process to complete coursework for the bachelor’s degree with a major in nursing and then become eligible for the NCLEX-RN licensure exam. Students who complete the AAS degree at BMCC and pass the NCLEX-RN exam also have the option to complete the upper division nursing courses for the bachelor’s degree from OHSU in a distance-education format with clinical experiences completed locally. Options available for baccalaureate completion can be found at http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/education/schools/school-of-nursing/programs/unde....

The Nursing program is approved by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN, 17938 SW Upper Boones Ferry Road, Portland, OR, 971-673-0685, www.oregon.gov/OSBN).

Entry Requirements
As part of their training, students must begin with the courses within their skill levels as determined by placement test scores. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their success.

Program admission occurs once per year. Deadline for submitting program application material is February 17, 2014, or the first business day thereafter, for fall term 2014 admission (see program website and/or application packet for more information). Transcripts showing satisfactory completion of the math and Anatomy and Physiology I prerequisites and at least 22 other credits of the prerequisite/preparatory courses (minimum 30 credits) must be in the Registrar’s office by the application deadline to be considered eligible. All prerequisite/preparatory courses must have been taken with a letter grade and completed with a “C” or better. Consortium partner schools will use shared standards in a point system and a set of core criteria for evaluation and selection of candidates to the consortium curriculum, but selection processes, acceptance decisions, and admissions will occur at individual schools. Application to the Nursing program requires a minimum GPA of 3.0 for all completed prerequisite/preparatory courses. Contact the Registrar for information regarding the application and selection process.

If an applicant has taken an equivalent course elsewhere which has a course number, title, or credit hour different from the BMCC course, the applicant must contact BMCC’s Registrar’s office for a transcript evaluation as far in advance of the application deadline as possible. To be admitted into nursing courses, students must complete all required prerequisite and preparatory courses (minimum 48 credits) and be accepted into the Nursing program.

Accepted students must undergo a criminal history background check prior to entering the program and will be required to undergo facility-specific background checks while in the program. Students may be required to undergo drug screening. Information regarding the background checks can be found on the program’s website and will be provided to students before fall nursing classes begin. Accepted students will also be required to complete by a specified deadline a CPR Health Care Provider course (adult/infant/child, one- and two-person, with AED; course must have been successfully completed prior to admission to nursing courses and maintained throughout the program). The CPR course must comply with the recently revised American Heart Association standards (compression, airway, breathing sequence rather than the previous airway, breathing, compression sequence). Information regarding required immunizations will be provided in the acceptance letter.

Internet and email access is an integral part of all nursing courses and access to a computer (at home or at the College) will be required on a daily basis. Nursing students attend classes at the BMCC campus in Pendleton and clinical practicum in northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington and will need reliable transportation. See the program website and/or program information for progression policies.

Graduation Requirements
These requirements apply only to nursing students admitted to the program during the 2014-2015 academic year. The program of study, graduation requirements, and courses are under constant review and are subject to revision. Students contemplating admission in a later year may have different requirements and must obtain the advising guide or catalog for that year. If required courses (i.e., clinicals) are graded only on a pass/no pass basis, a grade of “P” for these courses indicate a student earned a “C” or better grade.

Students must complete all courses on this advising guide with a grade of “C” or better to continue in and complete the program, receive their degrees, and meet the educational requirements to apply to take the national licensure exam (NCLEX-RN). The OSBN screens all applicants for licensure and may deny licensure to or place on probation applicants with convictions for certain crimes. Licensure applicants with a history of chemical dependence will be required to have a drug and alcohol counselor assessment. Contact the OSBN (http:www.osbn.state.or.us) with any questions.
