College of Graduate Nursing

Welcome to WesternU’s College of Graduate Nursing web pages! Over the years, our college has built a solid reputation of educating outstanding and compassionate advanced practice nurses and nurse leaders – a success we credit to our exceptional students, faculty, and community partners. WesternU has always looked to the future and was the first university in the United States to begin a web-based curriculum for family nurse practitioners. We have since grown and offer various points of entry for nurses who wish to advance their degree and for students who wish to change their career and enter the honored profession of nursing. We hope you find our web pages helpful and look forward to welcoming new students to be a part of our rich history and exciting future.
