Nursing Programs that offer WUE tuitionRegister Today!
- by legoac May 15, '10Can anyone tell me regular or accelerated/2nd degree nursing programs that offer WUE (Western Undergraduate Exchange) tuition rates? So far it seems a lot of schools exclude nursing- I'd appreciate info on any that don't!
- May 15, '10 by want2banurse35yes I think nursing is excluded from the program

However, I don't know which of the schools offer a second-degree BSN, so you'll have to do some research into the schools you're interested in. I'm from North Dakota, and I know that UND offers an accelerated second-degree program, and it's on the list. It's good to check policies, too, to make sure that they offer the rate to second-degree students.
I'm also looking for a second-degree program, so I'm hoping to find this out, too. I'll let you know if I find any more out about specific programs, and I'll be interested to see if you find any, as well.

Definitely let me know, I might start emailing and seeing if I can get the info from programs that are on the list and offer a 2nd degree option, if so I'll let you know what I find as well. I do know that my home state school (University of New Mexico) accepts WICHE students, but that doesn't help ME much! I'll definitely have to put UND on my list of potentials.
- May 23, '10 by LindsayLuIt's not looking too good. From what I can tell, a lot of schools require that you be pursuing your first bachelor's degree. I checked UND's site again, and it doesn't really specify though. Some schools refer to it as a scholarship you can get (with a requirement being that you're a freshman), and others (like UND) just list it along with resident and nonresident tuition. So confusing! It's probably good that you might e-mail some of them because this kind of thing is so hard to figure out from the websites.
