Q: How do I get information about the nursing program?/I have questions about the nursing program.
A: Most questions about the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program can be answered quickly by reading carefully through the EWU Pre-Nursing Blog.
Q: How can I schedule a meeting with a pre-nursing advisor?
A: General Undergraduate Academic Advising has two pre-nursing advisors. There are several things that must be completed before students may schedule an appointment to meet with a pre-nursing advisor:
- Read very carefully through the Pre-Nursing Blog to make sure you understand the prerequisite courses and admission requirements for this program and the high level of competitiveness that students must meet.
- Apply for admission as a new freshman, new transfer, new post bachelor student, or former student returning.
- Upon admission, confirm your intent to enroll and pay the New Student Enrollment Fee.
- Call General Undergraduate Academic Advising to schedule an appointment with a pre-nursing advisor: 509.359.2345.

- Upon admission, confirm your intent to enroll and pay the New Student Enrollment Fee.
- The next step is to make an appointment with an academic advisor or departmental advisor for academic advising and registration:
- Students with direct transfer degrees who know which major they would like to pursue should contact that department directly. Visit the department's website for the secretary's/main office phone number. Select your department from the list of programs available. You may also call the Campus Operator at 509.359.6200 for department contact information.
