Can nRF51422 or nRF51822 can be used as bluetooth device for Raspberry pi?

As I can see on the terminal Linux, the hciconfig log says, raspberry pi 3's Bluetooth device is connected to board with UART Connection.

I'm wondering If I Can use nRF51 devices as Bluetooth Device?

I mean can it be recognized as native Bluetooth device for linux that I Can easily use with simply hciconfig tool?

(Cause I'm trying to do this is, RPi 3's bluetooth chip is pretty Unstable to use with. (It disconnect's itself even if I dont controll it. Maybe Power Problem?).

What you need to connect device to Linux (using ex. Bluez stack) is device with HCI controller. Nordic Softdevices are not supporting that, however there are other stacks available. You may read something about Zephyr which supports HCI.
