Your Pathway to Nursing Starts Here

The West River Health Sciences Center is a coordinated effort between Black Hills State University, South Dakota State University, the University of South Dakota, and community organizations, such as the West River Area Health Education Center. Our main goals are:

    • Serving our nursing and healthcare workforce in the Black Hills region
    • Coordinating efforts between BHSU, SDSU, and USD so that students have a seamless transition in their degree plan, which will save them time and money
    • Preparing students for the USD and SDSU nursing programs or helping them explore other healthcare career options
    • Enabling students to pursue their entire college degree in the beautiful Black Hills 

Strategic Initiatives for Fall 2020

This fall, we’ll be reaching out to area partners to determine how the center can serve students and the community. We’ll also start offering personalized visits and informational sessions for students so they can start exploring our programs.
