How Do I Get Started?

Become a Professional with a License to Care

UW-Green Bay's Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Program and fully approved by the Wisconsin Board of Nursing. Coursework prepares students for the NCLEX-RN® exam, which evaluates if it is safe for you to begin practice as an entry-level nurse. Wisconsin is a member state of the Nurse License Compact. Applicants intended to relocate to another state that participates in the NLC may want to consider a multi-state license. The Traditional BSN program is designed to prepare entry-level nurses to work in hospitals, long-term care, and community settings.
