To answer you question regarding RN programs in the Spokane area, the following are ones that I know of: Intercollegiate College of Nursing
is the only BSN program that I am aware of in the Spokane area. It is through 4 universities; Whitworth (in Spokane/private), Gonzaga (in Spokane/private), Eastern Washington University (in Cheney/public), and Washington State University (in Pullman/public). It is a very competitive program, and only 20% of those accepted are allowed from schools other than these 4. If the route you are desiring is BSN without having to do an RN-BSN program, it will probably be in your benefit to enroll at one of these schools prior to applying. When I was looking into it, acceptance was based on grades alone, no other factors (letter of recommendation, resume, experience, etc.) were considered. Big Bend Communtiy College
in Moses Lake is about an hour and a half commute one way from Spokane, but it's all interstate (I-90). It offers an ADN program, but I'm not sure about entrance requirments. North Idaho College
in Coeur d'Alene Idaho has an ADN program, and isn't more than a 40 minute commute (again all on I-90). However, you would then be facing out of state tuition which you would not have with the other programs, assuming you have gained Washington residency prior to applying to programs.
I am not aware of any other schools in the Spokane area that offer RN programs, but there are others in Eastern Washington. Tri-Cities (Pasco) or Walla Walla would be the closest that I am know of, although it's a bit far for a daily commute.
Hope this helps, feel free to post or PM me if you have any other questions...I just finished my pre-reqs and have been applying to programs; mostly in Seattle, Tri-Cities, Walla Walla and Texas though; but I might be able to answer some questions. Best of luck!
