Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)

The WSU College of Nursing pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree prepares students for a lifelong career in nursing practice. The BSN program emphasizes sound clinical decision-making skills, nursing care quality, and patient safety by preparing students with a blend of course work, skills practice, simulation, and clinical experience. Students begin by learning foundational skills and theories in program courses. Critical thinking and skills application are honed in simulated scenarios while working alongside preceptors in safe, controlled environments. During their education, students log more than 950 clinical hours.

Students must have junior standing and have completed the College of Nursing’s prerequisite courses and the WSU’s University Common Requirements (UCORE). View other pre-application requirements or contact BSN pre-nursing advisor Linda Miller at millerl@tricity.wsu.edu or 509-372-7202.
