The traditional BSN program is available for high school graduates who aspire to a career in nursing. The program can be completed in four years at any of three WVU System campuses: Morgantown, Beckley or Keyser.
Upon successful completion, you will earn the BSN degree and are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN).
The BSN curriculum includes courses in the humanities and arts, social sciences, natural sciences and nursing science. Taken concurrently with these courses, nursing clinical courses enable you to immediately apply your learning to actual client, family and community situations.
Your senior year includes nursing experience at a community site, such as a public school system, county health department, individual patient home, community hospital or primary rural clinic.
When you graduate, you will be equipped for a beginning professional role with clients of all ages in any healthcare setting and will have an excellent foundation for graduate study.
