Nursing is a growing profession with a predicted shortage of 7,000 nurses in Washington in 2025.
A BSN in Nursing provides you opportunities to care for persons across the care continuum from community-based health promotion to caring for critically ill persons in the hospital, from birth in the obstetrics unit to a comfortable death. With a BSN, you will be a leader and policy maker, as well as a change maker in your community.
We offer three paths to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN):
The Traditional BSN is right for you if you are a first year or transfer student not currently practicing nursing.
RN to BSN
RN to BSN is the right program for you if you are already a RN.
LPN to BSN
This program is for LPNs who want to earn their BSN.

Saint Martin's Nursing Faculty Collaborating with Social Work is Awarded
Drs. Lori Sirs (Social Work) and Shandeigh Berry (Nursing), collaborating in a multidisciplinary research project between Social Work and Nursing, were awarded the Washington Campus Compact (WACC) "Student Civic Leader Fellowship Grant." This project focuses on supporting fathers experiencing grief following perinatal loss by using a movement modality known as ‘poi spinning.’ Dr. Sirs, who has been exploring poi spinning as a therapeutic movement modality for the past eight years, is working in collaboration with Dr. Berry, who specializes in perinatal loss, grief, and bereavement. Poi spinning workshops will be used to investigate the efficacy of this ancient practice in mitigating the risk of fathers developing complicated perinatal grief following perinatal loss, and provides two student Research Assistants perusing careers in Social Work and Nursing. Sanyt Shores from Nursing (left) and Cristina Tapia from Social Work (right) have been chosen from a pool of highly competitive applicants to serve as Research Assistants to Drs. Sirs and Berry.
