The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program planned for GWC will combine a strong foundation in the sciences with professional training and meaningful clinical experiences. Through the School of Nursing, you'll not only acquire the knowledge and skills you need to be a capable healthcare professional, you'll also gain the tools to make a difference in the lives of your patients and in your community. Your first two years will give you a solid academic core, laying the foundation for success. Throughout your junior and senior years, you'll dig into the professional side of nursing, including current research, clinical practice and hands-on internships.

The BSN is also offered as a RN to BSN Degree Completion program for registered nurses who have earned an associate degree or diploma in nursing.
