What does direct admission to nursing mean for you?

Case Western Reserve University's Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing is a direct admission program.

What does direct admission mean for our future nurses?

► It means our first-year students are already preparing to get hands-on clinical experience with real patients. In fact, our current first-year class will start their clinicals next week—that’s just three weeks into their first semester.

► It means Case Western Reserve nurses learn critical nursing techniques from the get-go, giving them time to refine their leadership and practical skills before graduation.

► It means our nurses graduate with more than 1,300 clinical hours (that’s double the national average), placing them at the forefront of hands-on caregiving experience. 

► It means employers take notice. Our nurses land jobs and go on to advanced nursing practice as soon as they graduate.

Case Western Reserve nurses enter the health care field as leaders and practiced professionals—as trustworthy, highly employable caregivers. This is the kind of nurse you want to be. We will get you there.
