RANGER RECOVERY: Updated mask / face covering requirements

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. 



UW System has announced a $500 tuition refund for the spring for eligible nursing or pharmacy students assisting with vaccination efforts in Wisconsin. Students who qualify must submit an employer form verifying eligible employment to the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid by December 31.

Qualifying Information

  • Must be enrolled in UW-Parkside Nursing Clinical Sequence
  • Must work a minimum of 16 hours as a COVID-19 vaccinator from September 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021.
  • Must have a current professional or nursing license with authorization to provide vaccination service, or coordinate with a Faculty Supervisor if not currently licensed

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.
