WGU has aligned with the Healthcare Career Advancement Program (H-CAP) to offer a tuition discount to qualified SEIU members. Nurses who are members of SEIU locals and other SEIU-based organizations that have been approved by H-CAP are eligible for the tuition benefit.
As the nation’s first online, nonprofit, competency-based university, WGU offers accredited degree programs in business, information technology, teacher education, and health professions, including nursing.
The unique, competency-based approach to education is an ideal match for busy, working adults who need a degree to advance their careers. As a student, you’ll be able to leverage your existing competencies—from work experience and prior education—to complete the requirements of your degree and potentially accelerate your program. You’ll also enjoy unparalleled flexibility and the personalized attention of a dedicated mentor.
At WGU, we measure learning, not time. You earn your degree by demonstrating competence in your field. Through independent study, learning resources, and carefully designed courses, you learn and master essential skills and knowledge necessary for success. If you have existing competencies from prior work and education, you may be able to draw upon this experience to complete course requirements faster and accelerate your degree program.

The nursing programs at WGU are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, 202-887-6791).
