COMPASSIONATE HEARTS, PRACTICAL HANDS, ACTIVE MINDS
Our vision to cultivate excellence in nursing leadership and transform the future of healthcare through collaborative partnerships is bearing fruit following the graduation of seven cohorts through summer 2018.
We are very proud of our over 200 alumni from Western nursing (including the nearly 100 students who graduated in the 1980’s)! Our current program in its sixth year with 143 graduates who are out there working to fulfill our mission of upholding social justice and advancing system changes that promote healthy communities resulting in safe, high-quality health care for all.
WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS – AND WHY IT IS A SOLID INVESTMENT
Please help us ensure we are able to keep recruiting the best and the brightest students, by making a gift today.
- The four-quarter BSN program at WWU costs nearly $15,000.
- Many BSN students are their family’s primary bread-winner, so there’s a double financial win: your support for their studies not only generates more graduates, those graduates will see a pay differential increase as well as being on track for higher-level, leadership positions.
- For many of our BSN students, the work towards this degree represents a shift in career choice, with a dedication to improving the health care system. Our students are driven, determined and committed.
- Western’s BSN program prepares our graduates to be informed decision-makers: it gives them the knowledge, the voice and the critical thinking they need not just to address increasingly complex community health issues, it empowers them as practitioners, as community advocates and as healthcare leaders.
