Major | BSN

A national premier nursing school, WSSU's undergraduate Nursing program prepares students to enter the workforce as generalists. The program provides theory, clinical practicums and public service experiences that are essential for delivery of professional nursing care in a variety of settings and to diverse populations. These experiences foster values such as kindness, compassion, justice, loyalty and also cultural competence and sensitivity. 

Sixty hours are required in the general education core and support courses for the nursing major. Upon completion of these courses, the student may apply for admission to the nursing major.

Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to the nursing program. Students must meet specific admission criteria set forth in the catalog and must apply for admission to the upper division of the major.

This program is great because we explore different areas such as pediatrics, mental health, public health, and maternal and newborn care. We get a feel for each area which prepares us to take on any field of nursing. I also love the family environment and that we all have each other’s backs.
