Considering a Nursing or Healthcare Degree? Here’s How WGU is Different

  • Cost-Smart. At WGU, your tuition is charged per six-month term, not per course credit, and covers the cost of as many courses as you can complete in that time.  
  • Accredited. Our nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) so you can feel confident knowing your earning career-relevant credentials.
  • Supportive. From day one, you’ll be matched with a Program Mentor who has experience in your specific subject area and will guide you through your degree.
  • Flexible. With 24/7 access to our online programs, you can complete coursework and take tests any time, day or night.

*If you’re applying to the RN-BSN or an MSN program, you must have an active unencumbered RN license to meet admissions criteria.

The baccalaureate degree program in nursing and master's degree program in nursing at WGU are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).

The post-graduate APRN certificate program at WGU is pursuing initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org). Applying for accreditation does not guarantee that accreditation will be granted.
