Most students looking for admission to the nursing program courses will apply to
the College, prepare to petition and when ready, petition to gain entry to the
nursing courses. However, reentry, transfer, and LPN Progression students are
not admitted by petition. Acceptance to the program will be based upon space
availability for all students.
LPN Progression Program
Licensed Practical Nurses that have been practicing for a period of time and
then return to further their education are called LPN Progression students. They
may receive credit for past clinical education based on their current knowledge,
skills and clinical judgment. In order to help LPNs to be program ready, they
will need to take a Nursing Bridge course before entering third semester. For

A re-entry student is one that has completed one (1) or more nursing courses at
Blackhawk Technical College, stepped out of the nursing program, and is applying
to re-enter the nursing program. For more information about the re-entry
admissions process click here.
A transfer nursing student is one that has completed one (1) or more nursing
courses at another accredited nursing program. For more information about
