    I can help, hopefully:


    www.washington.edu (UW)

    http://www.spu.edu/depts/hsc/ (Seattle Pacific University)

    http://www.wsna.org/snas/wa/links/ (WA State Nurses Assoc)


    http://southseattle.edu/calendar/calmain.htm (South Seattle University)

    www.seattleu.edu (Seattle University)

    Above is just a partial list that may point the person in the right direction--as you know, Seattle is a big place and I have not even covered the South Sound (Tacoma and Olympia). This person can always try my favorite standby website for finding nursing programs nationwide:


    Good luck and happy hunting. I am a Seattle-area resident, too!

    I also live in Seattle, but I think that SmilingBluEyes covered the bases in Seattle. There's Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, which is 30 minutes south of Seattle www.plu.edu/~nurs.

    There are also several community colleges. There's Bellevue Community, across Lake Washington from Seattle.

    Seattle itself has three community colleges within the city limits. Nursing is offered as well. http://seattlecolleges.com/dynamic.asp

    There's Shoreline Community, just north of the city. http://www.shore.ctc.edu/shoreline/index.html

    Also, the U of Washington was the first magnet hospital.

    Hope this helps!
