About Your Location:

Every state in the U.S. creates its own specific regulations about online enrollment of the students who live within the state. Some states require fees and/or application efforts that require a considerable investment of university resources. In an effort to maintain a reasonable tuition rate, Graceland University’s nursing program does not accept students who live in Kentucky, Maryland, New York, North Carolina or Tennessee at this time.

Graceland University is approved by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission to provide practice experiences in Washington State for RN - BSN, MSN, Post-Grad Certification, and DNP programs.
