Admission Overview

The First Year Entry RN to BSN degree program admits First Year applicants (freshman) each Autumn quarter. Applicants need to select the "First Year Entry RN to BSN" program when applying to the University. Applicants are reviewed for  admission to the University and the First Year Entry RN to BSN program simultaneously. Applicants should be familiar with the applications deadline and requirements and how to apply.

The program has a limited enrollment and is competitive entry. Applicants are ranked holistically against other applicants in the pool using multiple benchmarks. It is important to realize that more qualified applicants are received than there are seats in the program.

Admission to the program includes pre-admissions to the Everett Community College Nursing Program and to the UW Bothell RN to BSN program senior year. Students progress through both nursing programs upon successful completion of the academic and testing requirements. No re-application to EvCC Nursing or the RN to BSN program is necessary once admitted to the First Year Entry RN to BSN program.

Please Note:

  • First Year applicants who have elected to complete college coursework while in high school need to carefully review the information on earning college credit.
  • International applicants and internal UW Bothell students are not eligible to apply to this program. For more information, please see your pre-major or international student advisor.
