BS – Nursing (BSN)
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
UW-Washington County's Nursing program is a collaborative program with UW-Milwaukee. Each fall, UW-WC admits (on a competitive basis), a minimum of 16 students to the clinical major. These students complete the first four semesters of pre-nursing requirements at UW-WC. After the fourth semester, nursing students are admitted to the clinical nursing major and begin courses at UW-Milwaukee.
Special scholarship assistance is available for nursing students during their junior and senior years. The senior year brings students back to West Bend to complete their advanced clinical work in health facilities in West Bend and other Washington County communities. At the conclusion of this fourth year, successful participants will receive a B.S. degree with a major in Nursing from UW-Milwaukee and will be eligible to sit for the Registered Nurse licensure examination.
Recommended classes for nursing students include:
- English Composition (Eng-102)
- College Algebra or Quantitative Reasoning (Math-110 or Math-108)
- General Survey of Microbiology (Bac-101)
- Introduction to Chemistry (Che-125)
