Basic Medical Technician Corpsman (BMTC)-to-Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Bridge Program

The BMTC-to-BSN Bridge Program is based on and stems from the current ADN and RN-to-BSN Bridge Programs at Nightingale College. This Bridge Program is available for current or past military corpsmen or medics that have completed the Basic Medical Training Corpsman (BMTC) program (or other military equivalent). Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and content of the BMTC-to-BSN Bridge Program are identical to those in the current ADN and RN-to-BSN Bridge Programs. The BMTC-to-BSN Bridge Program was developed by mapping the current BMTC curriculum against Nightingale College’s current ADN curriculum in order to determine what nursing core content was previously covered and in the BMTC curriculum for a nursing degree. After the overlapping components of both curricula were identified, courses were created based on needs identified for this Bridge Program.

Students engage in didactic, lab, clinical, and capstone experiences in community nursing, leadership, policy, ethics, critical care, gerontology, health promotion, disease prevention, informatics, and other key nursing concepts. The curriculum is specifically constructed to promote career mobility in nursing. Upon satisfactory completion of the prescribed BMTC-to-BSN Bridge Program curriculum, the student will earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Read more »
