During June and August for prospective Nursing students 

Baltimore County, MD – Community College of Baltimore County Nursing students now have a wonderful opportunity to earn their bachelor’s degree with the expansion of the Associate to Bachelor’s Nursing degree option. Initially developed by CCBC and Towson University, the ATB Nursing option now includes three additional universities --Frostburg State University, Notre Dame of Maryland University and Stevenson University. CCBC Nursing students accepted into the ATB track can enroll and begin bachelor’s coursework at one of the partner institutions while working on their associate degree at CCBC.

To be eligible, students must first be accepted into CCBC’s Nursing program, have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and successfully complete a specified list of required courses. Students can complete the ATB Nursing option in 9 – 10 terms, including winter and summer, with the typical student having to complete only two to three terms after earning their associate degree. Depending on the institution, classes are taught online, face-to-face or in a blend of both. Some of the partnering institutions are offering discounts to ATB enrolled students.

If you are considering applying to the CCBC Nursing program this fall or in the future, plan to attend one of the Information Sessions on a new dual enrollment option for the Associate to Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
