Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Accelerated degree for registered nurses

NWU is Nebraska’s first choice for professional nurses who choose further academic study. A quality Bachelor of Science in Nursing is rapidly becoming the industry standard at respected hospitals and clinics because it is associated with better patient outcomes. NWU respects your previous nursing education and we will help you build upon it.

What makes NWU Nursing different.

In the classroom, you will continue to build your skills as you learn from both your professors and your colleagues. Everyone in the classroom has worked as a registered nurse; you will not only learn from one another, but teach each other as well. You will be challenged in the classroom to continue to develop your critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Nurses with an RN to BSN degree from NWU see improved patient outcomes. Innovation and creativity are encouraged as you thrive as a nurse and advance your career.

Learn from the best.

NWU has a long legacy of outstanding nursing education. The majority of our full-time nursing faculty have doctoral degrees in addition to decades of experience in patient care. Learning in one of NWU’s BSN classrooms is collaborative and student-centered. Our professors have high expectations for their students that lead to extraordinary performance and success. They value each individual student’s past experiences and education. Other organizations respect the high quality of our faculty. Recently, Dr. Linda Hardy was named the Nebraska Nursing Association’s Nurse Educator of the Year and Dr. Sue Gabriel was the March of Dimes Nebraska Nurse of the Year.
