Throughout your studies at the University of Washington School of Nursing, you will learn from our award-winning faculty, gain hands-on experience in our own Center for Excellence in Nursing Education (CENE) simulation lab, and learn alongside exceptional mentors who practice at hospitals and clinics in communities throughout the Puget Sound region.

Our goal is to set you up for success as a nursing student at the UW. We offer 6 degree programs for undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and graduate study. We also offer several advanced practice certificate programs for students who have earned or are currently pursuing a graduate degree. Whether you want to work directly with patients or to help advance nursing research, we likely have a program for you:

Applicants interested in our graduate degree programs have a variety of tracks to choose from. Our faculty members also lead annual international Exploration Seminars to give you exposure to the growing needs in global healthcare. If you already have a registered nursing (RN) license, you might also be interested in our Bachelor of Science in Nursing completion programs at our UW Bothell and UW Tacoma campuses.
