It is critical that nurses be prepared to meet new demands in health care: an increasingly diverse population, the largest health care overhaul in recent history, and higher complexity in patient needs.

Offered through the Woodring College of Education, Western’s RN-to-BSN Program supports lifelong learning and the preparation of a nursing workforce that will transform the health of our communities.  Students study topics such as social justice, nursing leadership, health policy and care coordination as they explore new industry challenges and the importance of nursing leadership in the face of health care transitions.
