Western Regional Graduate Program

The Washington State University College of Nursing has joined the Western Regional Graduate Program.

For New Applicants!
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.

Become a nurse educator, nurse practitioner, nurse researcher or nurse leader at WSU

There’s a nationwide shortage of nurse faculty in the United States; your PhD could prepare you to educate the next generation of nurses.

The DNP degree could help prepare you to be a nurse practitioner, leader in health care, or nurse educator.

With an MN-Population Health and optional certificates in organizational leadership, nursing education or public health, you’ll be prepared for an advanced practice nursing role in acute, outpatient and community settings.
