UW-Green Bay provides an ‘RN to BSN’ program in Nursing for registered nurses (RNs) who hold associate degrees or diplomas in nursing and want to complete their bachelor’s degree in nursing. Students are required to have a current RN license before being formally accepted into UW-Green Bay’s program.
UW-Green Bay does not offer nursing education for new freshmen or other newcomers to the field of nursing. Some students do, however, begin their studies with one or two years at UW-Green Bay before transferring to another nursing program. Students are advised to consult with their transfer school of choice regarding requirements, transfer information, and advising assistance before beginning course work at UW-Green Bay.
Newcomers to the field of nursing should consider other UW System programs at Oshkosh, Milwaukee, Madison, and Eau Claire. (Consult the UW System HELP website, www.uwhelp.wisconsin.edu, for details). Additionally, a number of private institutions in Wisconsin offer programs leading to a baccalaureate degree in nursing. Locally, for example, students of Bellin College in Green Bay can complete their general education requirements at UW-Green Bay through a dual-enrollment arrangement.
