Professional Licensure Disclosure

Does my UMW program meet requirements in my state or territory?

States and territories have different licensure requirements.  This page contains information to help students determine whether a UMW program that leads to licensure meets the educational requirements for licensure in a particular state.  Students are further advised to review the requirements for their state and to contact the appropriate licensing agency for additional information prior to enrolling in the program.

Nursing:  The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is a post-licensure program. The licensure part of the 1-2-1 program at UMW falls under the purview of Germanna Community College. For GCC’s information, please see:
