Multiple Campus Sites
True to WSU’s land-grant roots, the College of Nursing offers degree programs across the state to help address health care needs of all Washington residents. Degree programs are offered on WSU campuses in Spokane, Richland (the Tri-Cities), and Vancouver, and in Yakima and Walla Walla. Not all programs are offered at every site.
Faculty not only teach our students – they guide and mentor them every step of the way. Says Lorie Stucke, a recent graduate, “I was always so impressed by the faculty here and what they would do for their students. How they worked to help students overcome their fears and steer them to where they would find success, always with a very gentle but honest interaction.” Many faculty members are engaged in clinical practice and community outreach, and their scientific discovery is changing the understanding and evidence-based practice of health care.
Research and evidence over the past two decades have shown that teams of health care professionals working together can improve patient care and outcomes. Students at the College of Nursing will work in interprofessional teams from WSU’s other health sciences programs, as well as with students from other universities in the state. These teams will learn from each other, and learn to respect each other, cooperate and communicate, from the very beginning of their training.
