WVU School of Nursing to host March 6 virtual open house for BSN program

The West Virginia University School of Nursing is hosting a spring 2024 Virtual Open House for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at 6 p.m. March 6.

This event will feature information for the nationally ranked BSN program, which is offered on the Morgantown, Beckley and Keyser campuses.

The WVU School of Nursing boasts a 98% first-time pass rate average among its three BSN campus locations.

Attendees can hear from a panel of guests, including Dean Tara Hulsey, School of Nursing faculty and staff and School of Nursing Student Ambassadors, all of whom will provide insight into the program and answer questions.

“We invite interested students, both in-state and out-of-state, to learn more about our excellent nursing program at WVU,” Hulsey said.

While the virtual open house is geared toward high school juniors and seniors, everyone is invited to attend. Specifically, attendees can learn about first-time freshman program entrance requirements, receive an in-depth overview of the nursing curriculum from BSN Director Tina Antill Keener, and experience a virtual WV STEPS Center (simulation lab) tour.

“The virtual open house is a great opportunity to hear directly from current students and ask them any questions you may have about your experience here,” said Phillip Engelkemier, college recruitment specialist.
