Admissions overview and application deadline



As part of the UW Graduate School, the UW Bothell Nursing program is committed to providing a safe, secure, and welcoming environment. Students from diverse cultural, historically underrepresented, or disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to apply as are International students. Consistent with the schools vision and mission, the Nursing program fosters an inclusive environment, promotes social justice, recruits and graduates a diverse student body.

Applications are reviewed by a committee of graduate faculty and staff who consider several elements, including nursing goal statement, resume, letters of recommendation, and prior professional and academic work and accomplishments. Admission is based on acceptance by the UW Graduate School and the Nursing program of the University of Washington Bothell. 

The program admits once per year for Autumn Quarter which starts in late September. During other times of the year, eligible applicants are encouraged to begin as a graduate non-matriculated student.
