Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study


The Associate in Pre-Nursing Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Related Program (DTA/MRP) degree is intended for students looking to directly transfer to WA State universities to complete their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. Students enrolled in this 90-credit degree program receive instruction in English, psychology, mathematics, and science to prepare them to enter select Washington State four-year pre-licensure Nursing programs as a junior.

Upon completion of BTC’s Associate in Pre-Nursing DTA/MRP degree, students are eligible to transfer to a number of Washington State institutions including University of Washington, Washington State University, Northwest University, Pacific Lutheran University, Seattle University, and Walla Walla University. Completing this degree does not guarantee admission to any baccalaureate university. Students should meet with a transfer advisor at the institution to which they intend to transfer. Please note that this degree alone will not make the BTC graduate eligible to sit for the Registered Nurse National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). Graduates will need to complete their BSN degree at a university before they can become a Registered Nurse.

Placement Requirements

  • Students seeking credit for completed coursework from other colleges or universities should submit sealed Official Transcript(s) from the prior institution(s) to the BTC Admissions Office for evaluation. 
  • Placement testing in Reading, Math and Writing may also be required. Test scores or transcripts from another college may also be accepted. For more information on transferring classes, please see the Transfer Student page.

Degree Requirements

A cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher must be earned in all BTC coursework, and in all coursework applied to the degree. A minimum of 50% of degree credits, including the last quarter, must be completed at BTC.
