Career Ladder Planning

The School of Nursing contains three nursing program levels: associate’s degree (AAS/AS), bachelor’s degree (BSN), and master's degree (MSN). Each level provides a foundation for the next; as you progress through the levels, you build upon the knowledge and skills gained earlier. Licensed PN and RN graduates from non-WSU programs or WSU graduates may complete the necessary admission requirements to enter/re-enter the nursing program to advance their nursing knowledge. A College of Health Professions advisor is available to guide and assist with career planning.
