Bachelor of Science in Nursing (First Year Entry)


Admission Overview

The First Year Entry RN to BSN degree program admits First Year applicants each autumn quarter.  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 entry is competitive. Applicants are ranked holistically using multiple benchmarks. It is important to realize that many more applicants are received from qualified applicants than there are seats in the program, and that there are many possible routes to becoming an RN for students who are not accepted. 

Admission to the program includes conditional admissions to the Everett Community College Nursing Program and to the UW Bothell RN to BSN program.  Students progress through both nursing programs upon completion of the academic and testing requirements. No re-application to EvCC Nursing or the RN to BSN program is necessary.

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.
