There are five entry-options for the School of Nursing: PN, PN to RN (RN Completion), RN, RN to BSN, and BSN-MSN.
The PN program leads to an institutional certificate and to licensure by examination as a PN. The PN to RN (RN Completion) program and RN programs lead to an Associate's degree (AAS/AS) and licensure by examination as a Registered Nurse. The RN to BSN program requires valid RN licensure prior to entry and leads to a Bachelor's degree.
A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course is required of all accepted PN or RN applicants. A copy of the certificate of achievement or CNA recertification letter must be provided by the first day of the semester applicants were accepted to. For information concerning how to recertify as a CNA, contact the Utah Nursing Assistant Registry at 801-547-9947 or www.utahcna.com.
At this time, WSU does not offer a CNA course. Please contact or visit the following links for information regarding CNA courses taught at surrounding locations:
