First Year Entry RN to BSN
A UW Bothell and Everett Community College Nursing Partnership
If you are planning on applying to UW Bothell as a first-year student in pursuit of a nursing degree and are ready to fast track your studies, consider the First Year (freshman) Entry RN to BSN degree program.
The First Year RN to BSN degree program is an innovative new model of nursing education based on a joint partnership between UW Bothell School of Nursing and Health Studies and the Everett Community College Nursing program; two long standing nursing education programs.
The nursing partnership is grounded in the collaboration and sharing of the educational experience and curriculum, increasing access to nursing education for graduating high school students.
The program is specifically for university freshman students ready to complete the nursing prerequisites during their freshman, and part of their sophomore year on campus at UW Bothell; not prior, study off campus for two years at our partner nursing school for the RN preparation then return their senior year for their BSN coursework.
Students who complete the program graduate with two degrees: An Associate in Nursing Degree from the Everett Community College Nursing Program and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree from the UW Bothell School of Nursing and Health Studies and complete their nursing licensure their junior year in the program graduating with not just two nursing degrees, but as a Registered Nurse.
*A first-year student is defined as one who is entering the university following high school graduation, or an applicant who has never attended college since graduating from high school. See below for more information.
* If you have taken some college coursework outside of high school you are ineligible to apply for the First Year Entry RN to BSN program. To earn a BSN from UWB as a non-First-Year-Student, you must transfer into our RN to BSN degree completion program for community college nursing graduates.
