Lydia Green Nursing Program
The purpose of the Lydia Green Nursing Program is to prepare graduates of competence, character, and wisdom to meet the health needs of a community by promoting wellness and providing illness care for its members.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is approved by the state of Washington and accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The aim of the baccalaureate degree program is to foster the development of self-understanding, caring, collaboration, ethical thought and action, intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and judgment, as well as integrating Christian faith with scientific knowledge and clinical expertise.

There are two options for obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Nursing:

  • The basic four-year undergraduate pre-licensure program
  • The RN to BSN Degree Completion program

The Basic Four-Year Undergraduate Pre-Licensure Program

Students may complete all coursework at SPU or may transfer in prerequisite, general education, and elective coursework from other institutions.

Completing a Direct Transfer Associate of Arts Degree or a Direct Transfer Pre-Nursing Degree (DTA) facilitates the transition to SPU for transfer students. Upon satisfactory completion of the baccalaureate degree, the graduate is eligible to take the national examination required for licensure as a registered nurse (NCLEX-RN).

SPU baccalaureate graduates are prepared to assume entry-level practice and leadership roles in a variety of health care settings. 

The RN to BSN degree completion program enables non-baccalaureate prepared RNs to complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
