Bachelor of Science in Nursing

First Year Entry RN to BSN

A UW Bothell and Everett Community College Nursing Partnership

The First Year RN to BSN degree program is an innovative dual enrollment nursing program between the UW Bothell School of Nursing and Health Studies and the Everett Community College (EvCC) Nursing program; two long standing nursing education programs.

The program is designed specifically for university first year (freshman) applicants who select to complete the nursing prerequisites at UW Bothell and who can study off-site for two years at our community college partner institution. Off-site course study for nursing and the clinnicals is required because the UW Bothell campus does not have the RN training facilities.

Students admitted to the program are pre-admitted to the EvCC Nursing Program and to the UW Bothell RN to BSN program. This allows students to pursue their nursing education (which include the nursing prerequisites) starting as freshman at UW Bothell with no re-application to the EvCC nursing program and no re-application to the RN to BSN for completion of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree  awarded by UW Bothell.

Students who complete the program graduate with two degrees and completion of  RN licensure; An Associate in Nursing Degree from the Everett Community College Nursing Program in preparation for RN licensure, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree from the UW Bothell.

Students emerge from the First Year Entry RN to BSN degree program as a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, a recognized stepping stone to a promising career in nursing.


Please Note:

Applicants who have completed and received credit for college coursework while in high school need to review the admissions information on College Credit.

Applicants who have taken college coursework post high school are considered transfer students (not First Year Students) and should consider the RN to BSN program.
