Bakersfield College Fall 2019

  1. I know the program is still so far away but I decided to create a forum for us pre-nursing students at BC! I'm currently knocking out 3 prerequisites and will have 3 more remaining. I'm super excited to be on this journey! Let's talk!

    Hi, if you're taking your prerequisites; keep those power point slides as they can help you when preparing to take the TEAS 6 exam. It's never too early to brush up on topics. Aside, try getting your cna, ect. Or volunteer hours so you can become competitive in the point system. I wish I had someone to tell me all of this ahead but I was the student who only thought my classes being done and the TEAS was enough. I'm applying for This Fall and not too confident on my gpa and no volunteer hours. Don't have my cna, I have my medical assistant registration.

    Thanks for replying! Have you heard that BC changed their selection by merit? So it's based on GPAs and TEAS scores. I'm nto sure what you mean by volunteering hours and CNA work experience though? Last I checked BC does not require them in the process?

    The application process is now merit-based, so you accumulate points based on your effort. This includes your GPA and TEAS score, but it also includes points you can earn based on how many volunteer hours you have, if you know a second language, experience in the medical field, etc. Having your CNA or volunteer hours is not a requirement, but it does give you additional points towards your ranking.
