ABSN Program Site North of Seattle, Washington
Our satellite ABSN program site is north of Seattle, Washington in Lynnwood, approximately 40 miles from the Pacific Lutheran University campus in Tacoma. We enroll ABSN students three times a year in February, June and September.
As an accelerated nursing student, you will learn the fundamentals of nursing practice online and then convert that knowledge into psychomotor skills at our ABSN program site and local health care facilities.
Designed just for ABSN students, the site houses state-of-the-art nursing skills and simulation labs, offices, classrooms and a student lounge. Students must live within driving distance of the site because they regularly attend labs and take proctored exams at this location.
Why Study Nursing in the Seattle Metro Area?
Aside from being home to our 16-month ABSN program, Seattle has some of the best health care systems and facilities in the Pacific Northwest, including the University of Washington Medical Center, Virginia Mason Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center and Seattle Children’s Hospital.
According to CareerOneStop, 33,180 registered nurses worked in the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan area as of 2019—the highest concentration of RN employment in the state.
These nurses had annual salaries ranging from $65,580 to $123,470—higher than the national average.
For the state of Washington, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects registered nurse employment to grow 21% by between 2016 and 2026, with 7% growth expected nationally.
So what does all of this mean? It means that once you graduate from our ABSN program and earn your registered nurse license, there should be plenty of career opportunities worth pursuing in the area.
