Understanding the Degree
The First Year Entry RN to BSN program curriculum includes the nursing prerequisites and program requirements for both the EvCC Nursing Program and the UW Bothell RN to BSN program.
Students complete the EvCC nursing prerequisites and university general prerequisites their freshman and sophomore year at UW Bothell. Then sixth quarter in the program students transition to the EvCC Nursing Program for the next six academic quarters. Senior year the students return to complete their last year of nursing studies in the UW Bothell RN to BSN program senior year. Off-site study in the EvCC Nursing Program is required because the UW Bothell campus does not have the RN training facilities.
The curriculum is taken as a full time schedule from the first quarter forward and has a set of academic and professional requirements/testing that must be met in order to progress. Applicants need to enter the program with quantitative and science knowledge and competency, sound study habits and strong organizational skills.
Applicants who have selected to complete college coursework while in high school need to carefully review the admissions information on earning college credit.
Students who don't satisfy any one of the degree requirements forfeit their pre-admissions status to the EvCC Nursing Program and to the UW Bothell RN to BSN program. If this happens and the student remains in good academic standing with the University, they are moved to pre-major status. This means they can continue as a university pre-major student, but would need to go through the application process for a nursing program/school off campus and would then need to re-apply to the RN to BSN program.
