The WSU College of Nursing will welcome 121 new nursing students on campuses in Spokane, Yakima and the Tri-Cities in the fall. The students were selected for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (pre-licensure) program out of nearly 440 applicants.

Students must write about their experience and what they learned when applying to the WSU College of Nursing.
