Nursing Partnership: Elkhart General Home Cohort Prelicensure BSN Program
WGU’s Bachelor’s in Nursing (Prelicensure) program prepares you with the content knowledge and extensive in-hospital clinical experience to earn your bachelor’s degree and prepare you to sit for the national NCLEX-RN licensing exam. WGU’s nursing programs are fully accredited by CCNE.
Elkhart General Hospital will be a “home cohort” location for the BSN program. That means the majority of your clinicals will be completed at EGH. The program structure design enables students to continue working their jobs while completing the theory online, skills labs on periodic weekends and clinicals in an intensive approach over 3-4 week blocks. EGH employees who meet admission requirements receive preferential placement in the admission process.
