The School of Nursing and Healthcare Leadership offers two distinct undergraduate majors, an undergraduate minor and a professional graduate degree.
With strong ties to the South Puget Sound community students complete fieldwork and practicum placements in the South Puget Sound region and the faculty conduct collaborative research with partners in our community. The Nursing and Healthcare Leadership alumni are also actively involved in the healthcare field, in this region and nationally, either professionally or through volunteer opportunities.
Minor in Health & Society
The Health and Society minor is open to all UW Tacoma students, except Nursing and Healthcare Leadership majors. The Health and Society minor offers students the opportunity to increase their understanding of, and advocacy for, health within a broad social context.
Admission to this option is suspended for academic years 2023-2024 and 2024-2025.
The "ADN to BSN to MN" study option is a program plan for high-achieving associate degree or diploma-prepared nurses to earn their Master of Nursing degree. Applicants must be graduates of an NLN or ACEN accredited program. ADN-BSN-MN students substitute two undergraduate nursing courses with MN courses.
