Utah State University offers a pre-nursing program.

As a cooperative program, Weber State maintains and administers a nursing location on the Utah State Main Campus in Logan, Utah.
If you apply to WSU-Logan Campus nursing program, and are accepted, you will become a Weber State student attending classes on the USU campus and take advantage of the clinical opportunities at nursing homes and hospitals in Cache Valley.

Radiologic Sciences is a medical field that uses ionizing radiation, sound waves and magnetic fields to produce medical images for diagnostic purposes or to treat diseases by combining medical procedures with technology.
Before students may apply to a specialty within Radiology, students must first go through our Radiologic Technology/Radiography program. The Radiologic Technology/Radiography program is a five-semester Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, and upon completion, you will be eligible to sit for your American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) registry examination.
Once a student is ARRT certified, or eligible to sit for their ARRT credential, they may then apply to one of our Bachelor degree or Certificate programs in any of the Advanced Radiologic Sciences. A Radiology Practitioner Assistant/Radiology Assistant (RPA/RA) program is also available.
