Quality Instruction, Scholarship, Research, and Service
Faculty and students from the college are active in the Tri-Cities community, collaborating with nurses and healthcare leaders from area healthcare facilities, schools and universities, and hospitals. We cultivate and support higher education, with a deep commitment to quality instruction, scholarship, research, and service.
The Tri-Cities campus is also home to Nursing Pathways, which a Workforce Diversity grant funded by the Health Resources Service Administrations (HRSA) with initiatives to address social determinants of health, support diversification of nursing, and provision of quality care to under-served communities. Nursing Pathways accomplishes these initiatives by supporting BSN and RN to BSN students, living in rural, diverse, and under-served regions of Eastern Washington, as they advance to graduation and rewarding nursing careers.
