Support for BMCC Nursing Students
The Nursing Department works closely with BMCC students to make sure they have all the support they need. We provide tutoring, academic advisement/counseling by nursing faculty, and extensive library resources related to nursing.
Our Nursing Skills Laboratory allows nursing students to practice techniques they are learning with human patients simulators.
Our student nurse extern program will give you clinical experience in a hospital setting.
After graduating from BMCC with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing, students are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), or they may transfer to a four-year college or university to complete their bachelor’s degree in nursing.
