Graduating Prepared Nurse Leaders
The WSU College of Nursing pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree prepares students for a lifelong career in nursing practice. During the first two years of the curriculum, prerequisites and general university requirements are completed at Eastern Washington University, Whitworth University, Washington State University, or any institution offering equivalent courses. The last two years are completed at WSU College of Nursing in Spokane, Tri-Cities, or Yakima, Washington.
ABOUT THE PRE-LICENSURE BSN PROGRAM
The BSN program emphasizes sound clinical decision-making skills, nursing care quality, and patient safety by preparing students with a blend of course work, skills practice, simulation, and clinical experience. Students begin by learning foundational skills and theories in program courses. Critical thinking and skills application are honed in simulated scenarios while working alongside preceptors in safe, controlled environments. During their education, students log more than 950 clinical hours and thousands of hours in the practice and simulation lab preparing them for a successful career in nursing.
THE BSN IS CURRENTLY OFFERED AT SPOKANE, TRI-CITIES, AND YAKIMA
Students must have junior standing and have completed the College of Nursing’s prerequisite courses and the WSU’s University Common Requirements (UCORE). View other pre-application requirements or contact a BSN pre-nursing advisor.
