General Information

The nursing program offered at USU is administered and run by Weber State University with students taking prerequisite and support courses to prepare to apply to the program. If you apply to WSU-Logan Campus and are accepted you will become a Weber State student attending classes on the USU campus and take advantage of the clinical opportunities at nursing homes and hospitals in Cache Valley. The competition for this program is very high with many students competing for 30 potential positions in the class. For the 2009 cycle there were 125 qualified applicants with an average cumulative GPA of 3.87. Over 65% of those accepted had a previous degree or letter of completion (all general education classes completed)
