Nursing Program

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BS in Nursing) program prepares you to be a science-based, compassionate nurse leader.  With over 160 clinical partners in Southeastern Wisconsin, students learn through innovative and quality educational programs and receive learning experiences in a variety of practice settings in the Racine/Kenosha area.  


For over 40 years UW-Parkside has partnered with UW-Milwaukee providing students a quality nursing education at an affordable price.  Students benefit from resources available at both UW-Parkside and UW-Milwaukee but enjoy the small school feel with only 40 students in the professional major each year. 


Schedule an appointment to meet with the nursing advisor to determine your eligibility for the major.  If you are eligible, you will complete a major declaration form.


Once admitted to the professional nursing major, UW-Parkside students are eligible to apply for both UW-Parkside and UW-Milwaukee scholarships and grants.
