5 Nursing Campuses,
1 WVU School of Nursing.

Whether you are interested in earning your first degree or advancing your field of knowledge at the graduate level, the WVU School of Nursing has a program for you on one of our five campuses.

Bridgeport Campus

Accelerated BSN at the Bridgeport Campus

A brand-new facility as part of the WVU Medicine United Hospital Center will allow students at our newest campus to participate in an accelerated undergraduate nursing program.

In a unique partnership, a new wing of WVU Medicine United Hospital Center in Bridgeport houses a WVU School of Nursing accelerated undergraduate nursing program. Students can appreciate the convenience of state-of-the art classrooms and skills labs just steps away from the clinical facility. At Bridgeport, students can enjoy smaller class sizes, connect with a close cohort of 24 fellow classmates, and engage with dedicated faculty members.

The UHC campus program’s first cohort began January 2023. The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program, which mirrors the Morgantown Campus program, provides accelerated entry into the nursing profession for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in another field. The program runs five full-time semesters, or 18 months in length, and consists of 66 credits of nursing curriculum.

Accelerated BSN (ABSN)

The ABSN program is an accelerated program for college graduates who wish to become a registered nurse with a bachelor's degree in nursing. The program, offered on the Morgantown and Bridgeport campuses, is designed for full-time study. After 18 months of continuous enrollment, successful students obtain the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN) and are eligible to take the licensing examination for a registered professional nurse (RN).

Miguel Carunungan

As a veteran, nontraditional student, the thing that I love most about my accelerated-BSN cohort here at the Bridgeport campus is that — for the first time and unlike my first Bachelor's — I don't feel like the odd duck out. Many of my classmates share similar life experiences, have families, and are of a similar age.

Stephanie Lusk

When I got to college, nursing was what I interested in. When I thought about my role models when I was younger, the strongest women I knew were nurses, and I love that caring is one of the most essential elements in being a nurse.
