Bachelor's of Science in Nursing

Wesleyan’s Nursing program is designed to help students explore the pathways to the healing sciences and arts found in nursing. Students engage in a rigorous curriculum, which prepares graduates to enter the profession as safe, skilled practitioners who demonstrate critical thinking, effective communication and a foundation for graduate study in nursing. The program is fully approved by the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Nurses (101 Dee Drive, Suite 102, Charleston, WV 25311-1620; telephone 304-558-3596), and fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc (ACEN).; formerly the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA, 30326; telephone 1-866-747-9965).

The professional nursing practice component of the program includes both didactic and clinical practice in a variety of settings in acute care and the community. The faculty reserves the right to exclude or remove from clinical practice any student who has demonstrated attitudes or behaviors incompatible with safe nursing practice. Nursing majors receive a Nursing Student Handbook, which outlines departmental policies pertaining to admission, progression, retention and suitability among others. Students are responsible for their own transportation to clinical practice sites.

Because progression in the major requires careful coordination of academic study and future goals, students are encouraged to seek early advising from a member of the nursing faculty. Students anticipating graduate education are advised to complete a statistics course selected in consultation with a nursing advisor.

The West Virginia State NCLEX pass rate for West Virginia Wesleyan College School of Nursing for 2015 is 100%.
