School of Nursing Publications


Letter from the Director:

We are pleased to share with you our first Nursing Newsletter. We hope to use this periodical to help keep our alumni, community agencies, and current students informed of changes and accomplishments at the WKU School of Nursing. As you will see, as you read through the articles, we have a lot going on this year. We will be hosting our CCNE site visit in April 2017. We are in the process of writing the self-study report now, and will be asking some of you to come to campus to meet with our visitors. We will start expanding openings in the BSN program in Fall of 2017 as we phase out the traditional ASN program. We will continue to offer the online LPN to ASN program, as this program is not currently offered by local community colleges. We will also continue our popular online RN to BSN program. Finally, we are increasing opportunities for graduate students. The new Urgent Care/ER track for nurse practitioners will be starting this fall, and we will continue to grow the new Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner track as well. The DNP program is continuing to grow and we should have more DNP graduates available for the workforce this next year.

We would love to include more alumni news for our next newsletter, so if you have news for us, please email to let us know what you are up to.

Thank you for all you do to support the various programs and students here at WKU!
