Registered Nursing – Transitional (ADN)
Belmont College offers the Transitional Nursing curriculum in which a Licensed Practical Nurse or a Certified Paramedic has the opportunity to enter the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program. Following the Transitional Nursing semester, the student can pursue an Associate Degree in Nursing and become eligible to take NCLEX-RN.
This two-year associate degree program prepares the graduate to pass the NCLEX-RN licensing examinations and become a Registered Nurse. Apply early to this highly-selective and highly-challenging program. The program is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing and the Ohio Board of Regents.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the temporary closure of Belmont’s campus, the ranking criteria for the Nursing programs has changed. In the past, students were to take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) exam and were ranked according to their scores, however since the college is closed, the TEAS exam cannot be administered. For the nursing program, students accepted for the Fall 2020 term will be ranked based upon their GPA and course grades in their prerequisite courses. Those students scoring higher on the ranking criteria will be chosen before lower ranked students.
Students will still be required to take the TEAS exam before the start of the fall term, however their ranking criteria will not be based on it.
