Program Details and Site Information

Program Details

The RN to BSN program is offered at multiple locations and at different times during the year. Students take the program together in a group as a cohort with a set course schedule. 

The program is designed to be completed in a 4 or 8 quarters. The 4 quarter program is considered to be the full time track, while the 8 quarter program is the part time track.

The nursing courses meet in person every-other-week from approximately 8:00 am - 5:30 pm with two (2) electives that may meet in person up to three (3) times per quarter in the evenings, from 5:45 - 9:00 pm.  

Additionally, the program consists of a Community Health Course which requires fieldwork outside of the classroom and requires travel within the region. The Community Health Course (fieldwork) meets weekly and is not offered in a hybrid format.  The fieldwork hours vary and may extend to evenings. 

Whether on the Bothell campus or at one of our off-site locations, students apply to the UWB RN to BSN program, go through the same review process and experience the same curriculum.
