As the Interim Academic Director for the WSU Tri-Cities campus of the College of Nursing, I welcome you to look through our website and explore the options for nursing education. Our college utilizes simulation and interprofessional education to prepare WSU nursing graduates to meet the needs of the state and nation in practice, research and education.

Whether you’re deciding if you want to be a nurse or are an advanced-practice registered nurse (RN) who’d like to purse a bachelor of nursing (BSN) or pursue a graduate degree, you’ll find dynamic and engaging classroom and research experiences with faculty who are invested in your success. We welcome your questions and encourage you to visit campus, talk with faculty, and discover what WSU Tri-Cities can offer you.
