Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
We are excited to have you explore the career of nursing with us. The BSN program requires four years of full time study. The first two years focus on a broad spectrum of courses, including; university breadth area core (BACR) requirements, competencies, and proficiencies; as well as nursing pre-requisite courses that prepare students for upper division nursing courses. The final two years of nursing courses are completed on the Spokane campus, where students engage in classroom, laboratory, and clinical learning experiences that take place over 4 semesters. The EWU BSN program accepts a 40 seat cohort both fall and spring semesters. The EWU nursing program is located in the beautiful University District of Spokane.
Nursing students start with prerequisite courses in biology, chemistry, psychology, sociology, human development, statistics, and nutrition. Once admitted to the BSN program, specialized coursework can include: pathophysiology/pharmacology, health assessment, gerontology, childbearing health, psychiatric/mental health care nursing, leadership/management, acute/chronic care nursing, and much more.
