HU BSN program aims to alleviate projected nursing shortage in U.S.

The U.S. is projected to experience a shortage of registered nurses in the coming decades. It’s a problem that will be compounded by the aging Baby Boomer generation.
Heritage University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program was started in 2015 to help meet that demand. With our nursing program, students graduate with three years of work experience in patient care. The rigorous curriculum, experienced faculty and state-of-the-art nursing center will equip students to step into a nursing position right after graduation or continue their education in a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) or PhD Nurse scientist program.
The BSN program at Heritage recently earned accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). For more information on how to get started with the BSN at HU,  contact Melissa Sanchez at (509) 865-8551 or visit Heritage.edu/nursing.

One is geared specifically towards minority students, who often face greater financial hardship than their counterparts. They are:
