Boise State University (Department of Nursing)




The Boise State University Nursing Department offers excellence in nursing education. Our program prepares students to become leaders in nursing, ready to provide caring, holistic and quality nursing services to diverse populations. As a premier school of nursing in the Intermountain West we are recognized for outstanding teaching and a commitment to service.

Whether you are a prospective student, parent, alumni or current student we invite you to learn more about our innovative nursing programs. We are committed to lifelong learning and this is exemplified in our baccalaureate nursing program as well as the proposed Master’s in Nursing. Advanced placement opportunities for currently licensed nurses wishing to return to further their education are also available.

Our Bachelor of Science program offers students the ability to earn an Associate of Science Degree while working toward a Bachelor of Science Degree. Students are eligible to take their LPN licensure exam after four semesters in our program and they are eligible to take the licensure exam for RN’s after completing either the Associate or Bachelor of Science Degrees. In cooperation with the Larry G. Selland College of Applied Technology, we are also offering a professional-technical practical nursing track.

We are looking forward to State Board of Education approval of a new Master’s in Nursing program to begin Fall 2006. Master's prepared nurses are needed to provide valuable nursing research, leadership in clinical practice and education of future nurses. The proposed master's is population focused and will directly address the unmet health care needs of people in our state.
