Kansas Board of Nursing approves Pathway to Nursing program

The Wichita State and Kansas State Pathway to Nursing Program has been approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing. This dual-degree program is a unique collaboration that provides students the opportunity to earn both a Bachelor of Science degree from K-State, and a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Wichita State.

Both degree programs will be based in Manhattan, Kansas, and the facilities at the K-State campus have been remodeled and equipped with new supplies and cutting-edge simulation equipment. The first cohort will begin in fall 2022. 

“We are very excited to see this program come to fruition,” said Debra Pile, chair and associate dean for nursing practice. “This type of program has never existed in Kansas, and we are pleased to provide more students with a path to education in nursing and positively impact local health care.”
