West Coast University Campuses:
Introducing WCU Dallas, the newest West Coast University campus dedicated entirely to higher education for nurses. Modeled after the successful curricula offered at the University’s current campuses, the Dallas campus offers a BSN program focused on teaching students to be life-long learners, critical thinkers and compassionate caregivers.
West Coast University received approval by the Texas Board of Nursing and is now enrolling the BSN program.
West Coast University is committed to creating and maintaining best-in-class educational facilities. Our campuses include the use of smart technology, high-fidelity equipment, as well as modern and welcoming study rooms and gathering spaces that encourage connections between students, faculty and associates. Add computer labs and “Internet Bars” with ample computer access and the result is a student-centric facility with the resources to train, support and prepare exceptional nursing candidates for their professional careers.
The striking linear design of the Ontario campus is both sophisticated and accessible with contemporary, clean lines and bold pops of color and texture. The resulting campus space is a best-in-class facility with interactive and purposeful learning environments that enrich the everyday campus experience.
In Ontario, West Coast University occupies two and a half floors of a recognized green building, which is certified for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). By designing a separate entrance and moving the hallways and corridors to the exterior of the building, WCU has created a space that is clean, crisp and bright. Integral to the design is a quad area for casual social interaction between students and staff. Information nooks and study areas along the hallways create additional spaces for students to read, study and connect with each other, faculty and associates.
