The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is offered with the WSU College of Nursing in Spokane, Tri-Cities, or Yakima Washington. A consortium partnership with Eastern Washington University (EWU), Washington State University (WSU) and Whitworth University enables students to complete undergraduate degree requirements and nursing prerequisite courses at one of the participating universities before applying to WSU College of Nursing to finish the BSN degree.

Students applying from EWU have priority admission to the BSN program. Typically, freshmen enrolling at EWU need at least two years of coursework to prepare to apply to the BSN program. Students who are admitted will take an additional two years of coursework through WSU College of Nursing to complete the BSN degree.
