Graduate and Doctoral Degrees

There are many ways to advance in the nursing profession – become a healthcare administrator, an educator, a nurse researcher or a nurse practitioner. The Washington State University College of Nursing has graduate programs to help you achieve any of these goals, and more.

Whether you choose an MN, DNP, PhD, or graduate certificate, most of your coursework will be online. We also offer a range of scholarships and financial assistance programs to help you pay for your graduate studies. 

The Washington State University College of Nursing has joined the Western Regional Graduate Program. If you’re a resident of 16 western states or territories and a full-time student, you can pursue your PhD, DNP or Master of Nursing-Population Health at WSU and pay the in-state tuition rate – a savings of thousands of dollars per semester.
