NC-Sara State Licensure Confirmation

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:
