Associate of Science Degree Program Objectives
Weber State University and Utah State University jointly offer an Associate of Science degree in Nursing at Logan.
All nursing theory, University Studies, and laboratory practice classes are offered on the Utah State University campus and in health service agencies in Northern Utah.
Weber State University admits the prospective student and grants the Associate of Science degree upon the student’s completion of the program. The student participates in graduation ceremonies held on the Weber State University campus.
Acceptance and completion of the nursing program does not assure eligibility for Registered Nurse National Council Licensing Exams (RN-NCLEX). The program is approved by the Utah State Board of Nursing and accredited by the National League of Nursing Accrediting Commission.
Students admitted to the program have the prerogative of taking the licensing examination for Practical Nursing upon an equivalency basis with the completion of the first year’s course of studies.
Departmental Admission Requirements for Associate of Science Degree Program
Admission into the Cooperative Nursing Program is selective. To ensure quality clinical placement, a limited number of students are accepted into the program each year. Applications are accepted once a year and are available online or in-person after October 1. Students must complete the application process by February 1.
Applications are reviewed by the Weber State University School of Nursing Admissions and Advancement Committee. A point system is used to facilitate candidate selection. Applications received by January 15 will earn extra points. Support courses will be evaluated, but points will not be awarded for courses already in-progress during the semester in which an application is received. Students will be notified of acceptance into the program by April 15.
Utah State University Pre-Nursing Program
Initially, many students are admitted into Utah State University to take their general education and supporting science courses, in order to become competitive applicants for the Weber State RN program on the Logan campus. Students must attain a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to apply to the WSU School of Nursing Program.
All pre-nursing students should subscribe to the Pre-Nursing E-mail List. The purpose of this list is to keep pre-nursing students informed about meetings and activities which will support their progress toward admission into an RN program in Utah.
