EWU Nursing Program Classes Begin Fall 2023
The newly launched EWU Nursing program will prepare students for a rewarding career in nursing at a time when there is a critical shortage of nurses throughout the state and nation. EWU Nursing will accept 40 admissions spots each Fall and Spring starting in 2023.
Our graduates will be lifelong learners prepared to practice with integrity and compassion as they care for people across their lifespans in various healthcare settings. The Nursing BSN degree provides transformative educational experiences to create a culture of excellence in the art and science of nursing.
Eastern’s nursing program is housed inside the SIERR Building in the University District and is part of the growing “Health Peninsula” in Spokane. This unique location creates the optimal hub for research, development and advancement of health sciences — and builds upon partnerships with nearby hospitals, clinics and health education centers to create a comprehensive learning experience.
