Bachelor of Science in Nursing University of Washington




Course info


The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at the UW Seattle campus is a two-year professional program that prepares you for a career as a registered nurse. As a BSN student, you will learn from our nationally acclaimed faculty in class and using interactive scenarios in our Learning Lab, allowing you to practice nursing skills in a safe environment before performing them in a supervised clinical setting.

You will build on those foundational skills with over 1,000 hours of hands-on patient care experience under the guidance of licensed care providers. These experiences take place at one of our 700+ respected community partnership sites, including Seattle Children’s Hospital and the top-ranked University of Washington Medical Center.

With over a ninety-eight percent graduation rate annually, the UW School of Nursing prepares you for success and excellence in nursing.


BSN students begin as college-level juniors, having already completed 90 quarter/60 semester college-level credits or a previous bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field. A solid foundation of science and humanities prerequisite coursework sets you up for success in our program.

The BSN is a full-time program, including:

academic coursework focused on critical thinking, care and therapeutics, and health care resources

in-class lecture with experienced nurse practitioners and researchers

clinical simulation exercises in our Learning Lab, and

supervised direct patient care in the field

Many of our BSN graduates continue on to graduate nursing study and careers in research, administration, and education.
