K-State and Wichita State Pathway to Nursing Program

K-State and Wichita State University partner together to bring you a unique dual-degree opportunity to kickstart your nursing career.

The Pathway to Nursing Program will give you the opportunity to earn two degrees from two prestigious universities:

  • a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from Kansas State University
  • a Bachelor of Science nursing degree (B.S.N.) from the College of Health Professions at Wichita State University (WSU)

How the Pathway to Nursing Program works

  • Upon declaring your pre-nursing interest, you will be assigned a health professions advisor in the College of Health and Human Sciences at K-State who works in conjunction with the academic advisor for your chosen academic major at K-State.
  • You will spend the first three years in your K-State degree program taking courses towards a B.S. degree from K-State while fulfilling the requirements needed to apply for the B.S.N. program.
  • You will then submit an application for WSU’s Traditional B.S.N. program. Accepted students will spend the next two years in the Traditional B.S.N. program, and earn a B.S.N. degree from WSU.
  • The WSU Nursing coursework will transfer back to K-State to fulfill any remaining electives in the K-State degree. Students will graduate with both B.S. degrees in the same semester
  • Both of your degrees (from K-State and WSU) will be based in Manhattan, Kansas.
