Campus-based programs in Hawaii

Hawaii Pacific University
1164 Bishop St, Honolulu, HI 96813
Hawaii Pacific has an entry-level BSN degree designed for students seeking initial licensure. To be considered for the major, students must have attained a GPA of 2. 75 on all science courses and a similar cumulative GPA on all other prior college work. Students who have taken courses at HPU are given more priority than those attempting to transfer credits. At HPU nurses will learn in a culturally diverse and rich environment.

Most nursing courses are offered at their Loa Campus on a full-time basis with selected courses being offered in the evenings and weekends. There are unique features about the BSN at HPU in that students can be allowed to take extra nursing courses in either transcultural or forensic nursing. This enables students to graduate with either a Forensic Health Science Cert or a Transcultural Nursing Cert. There is also an option for the international BSN pathway whereby students complete HPU courses but apply for licensure in their home country.
