Professional Program inNursing

BSN Overview

The Professional Program in Nursing at UW-Green Bay provides an opportunity for Registered Nurses (RNs) holding an associate degree or diploma in nursing to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN). Students must have a current RN license in any state and have a grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale or equivalent on post-secondary coursework.

This accredited, high quality BSN completion program is designed to be nurse-friendly. It is a flexible program designed to meet the needs of adult learners and working registered nurses throughout Wisconsin and the United States. Prior learning is acknowledged through liberal articulation and transfer policies.

The program is built upon the foundation of the associate degree or diploma in Nursing and includes general education courses, courses supportive of Nursing, and the upper-level Nursing courses. The program consists of 120 credits for the BSN degree. The RN typically transfers 60 credits through articulation agreements. Additional credits completed at other universities, colleges, or community colleges also transfer. The remaining UW-Green Bay requirements for graduation include 30 credits of general education and support courses for the Nursing Major and 30 credits of upper level Nursing courses.

The program is offered in three tracks:

Even though courses are delivered through different modalities, the program requirements, outcomes, and curriculum are the same for all three tracks.

Only one course, Community Health Nursing Practicum requires a practicum. The practicum involves flexible scheduling and is arranged near the student’s home.
