Why Choose WKU Nursing?

Just ask our students. WKU is a special place to become a nurse because of our excellent faculty, our new facilities, our community based clinical partnerships and the entire WKU experience. Our students have passrates ranging from 90-100% on the NCLEX licensure exam and the nurse practitioner exams. Our alumni routinely report 100% employment on 1 year post graduation surveys. We also recently doubled the number of students we admit to our nursing programs so there has never been a better time to become a WKU nurse!
