Nursing Licensure

Once students graduate from the accelerated BSN track at UIW, they are eligible to apply for licensure in the state where they’ll work as a nurse. They’ll be able to sit for the NCLEX, and upon passing this exam and meeting any other state-specific requirements, they can receive their registered nurse license.
