Bachelor of Science in Nursing

For RN to BSN students

A Bachelor of Science in Nursing is rapidly becoming the industry standard at respected hospitals and clinics. A BSN from Nebraska Wesleyan University will increase your value with employers and will open new career prospects.

What makes NWU Nursing different.

Our BSN program is designed to teach you the biological, sociological, psychological and ethical aspects of health assessment on a local and global scale while developing your leadership and management skills in health care.

Paired with our liberal arts education, you will become skilled in critical thinking, communication and problem solving. Nurses with this type of education see improved outcomes in their patients. Hospitals benefit from a safer working environment and a ready pipeline of nurses prepared for leadership and management.

This combination will make you better prepared to help individual patients, groups and entire communities achieve better health and wellness.

Learn from the best.

NWU’s nursing professors hold PhDs, EdDs and MSNs in addition to decades of experience in patient care. They are eager to support your development as an outstanding nursing professional.

Our accreditation speaks for itself.
