School of Nursing
Weber State University began the Bachelor of Science program in nursing in 1987 based on a need for associate prepared nurses in Northern Utah to continue to the next level of education. The program started Fall semester with an enrollment of 34 students. Currently there are approximately 275 students in the program. The program provides students a foundation for the holistice practice of professional nursing. The program received initial accreditation from the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) in 1990. The program is responsible for doing continuous formative and summative evaluation as part of the accreditation process. This includes course review for faculty input and content updates, review of the admission process, review of program documents, review of semester course and evaluation data, review of graduation rates, employee and student program satisfaction.
