For nearly a century, the UW–Madison School of Nursing has educated and inspired the most innovative professionals in the field of nursing. We develop critical thinkers and leaders for the profession and for society. We make discoveries, enhance systems, and improve health through research, education, and practice.
The school is the preeminent nursing research institution in Wisconsin and a fundamental part of the state’s healthcare system. We’re the only Academic Health Center in Wisconsin, collaborating across disciplines with the School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Pharmacy, and UW Hospitals and Clinics.
Our students learn the concepts and skills necessary to thrive in an evolving field and apply them through hands-on clinical experiences. We prepare students for successful and rewarding careers across all clinical and community practice settings, from the exam room to the board room. Our graduates organize disaster relief efforts and serve in the military. They educate their peers, patients, and future nurses, and they participate in groundbreaking research that transforms healthcare, improves wellbeing, and advances nursing practice.
Our nursing programs offer three pathways to obtain a Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN): our traditional program, our accelerated program, and the BSN@Home program. We also offer graduate level programs for PhD and Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP).
