RN to B.S.N. nursing program


WSU College of Nursing offers a Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN - B.S.N.) degree for new or experienced licensed practicing nurses who want to enhance their nursing career by earning their B.S.N., or for Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) students completing graduation and licensure.

The RN - B.S.N. program builds on the RN background and includes essential course work in assessment, research, leadership and management, ethics, and community health. Advanced practicum experiences bridge course work and theory with clinical practice.

The program is flexible, offering hybrid course delivery with minimum required campus attendance each semester. Full-time, part-time, or individualized plans of study can be arranged with an RN - B.S.N. advisor. Clinicals are completed at a variety of sites.
