The RN - BS Nursing Program
Western at Waterbury and NVCC have developed a program that allows RNs who graduate from the community college to immediately begin work on a bachelor of science in nursing at the university. Western delivers this RN to BS Nursing bachelor-completion program, as well as one that leads to a BBA in Supervisory Management, on the campus of Naugatuck Valley Community College in Waterbury. NVCC students also may enroll in Western courses through the university’s “cross-registration program”, which allows full-time NVCC students to take up to six credits with Western for free.
