LWTech currently offers a Nursing Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and a Nursing Associate of Applied Science Transfer (AAST) degrees. The BSN degree, now required by many employers, will provide a direct degree path to best serve students, and our region’s healthcare providers.
“The BSN Program at LWTech is a vital component of EvergreenHealth’s plan to provide the highest caliber of care to our community as well as resource to our current staff.”
– Neil Johnson, Chief Operating Officer, Evergreen Health;
Trustee, Lake Washington Institute of Technology;
LWTech Foundation Board Member
As healthcare continues to moves toward patient-centered medicine, nurses will play
a more integral role in the quality of patient care.
– Kelsea Ariel, Nursing Student, LWTech

|How Will the Start Up Funds Be Used?|
|Endowed Nursing Scholarship||$100,000|
|Simulation Lab Updates||$75,000|
Private funding is vital to the success of our programs. As Washington state’s only
public institute of technology, just 35% of LWTech’s total operating budget is met
with state/public funding. The generosity of individuals and corporations provides
LWTech with the ability to bridge the gap between state funding and critical needs
that meet industry demand. The startup cost of $500,000 is what’s needed to launch
the BSN at LWTech, and
is a perfect example of the important role philanthropy can play in meeting the needs of students and industry.
