The West Virginia Wesleyan College University Bachelor of Science in Nursing is a program preparing students for a career in the nursing profession. The program is accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

Students are prepared for the theoretical and practical aspects of a career in nursing forming the foundation for professional nursing and further graduate studies.

Graduates from the program are eligible to apply to sit for National Examinations for licensing to obtain licensure as a Registered Nurse.

Admissions Requirements:

  1. Applications to the nursing program will be reviewed on the basis of a combined assessment of high school GPA and total SAT scores or composite ACT scores. The program has limited space available for direct admission students.
  2. Students who have already completed some degree of college level course work can apply to transfer to the program. Students transferring from another institution and/or another major are required to show proof of a minimum of 3.0 GPA for all college level course work and all pre-requisite courses to the program will need to have been completed with a ‘C’ grade or higher.

Registered Nurses are admitted to the program on the basis of academic records and the availability of space. Registered Nurses applying to the program are required a minimum of a 2.5 GPA or higher for all college level coursework and an unencumbered license to practice.
