The nursing partnership program offers an opportunity for high school graduates to earn both an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) through the collaborative programs of UW-Stevens Point, Mid-State Technical College (Stevens Point, Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield), Northcentral Technical College (Wausau) and Nicolet College (Rhinelander).
Students entering the program can experience traditional college opportunities, including: living on campus, NCAA athletics, and participation in student organizations while also taking advantage of the high quality, nationally accredited expertise of UWSP and our partner ADN programs.
Students may begin their coursework at UWSP or partner institutions by taking general education courses in addition to the partnership program’s ADN admission requirements. It is possible to be dually enrolled at UWSP and the local partner institution to complete these requirements.
This program provides an efficient and affordable path to becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) in Central Wisconsin. For students beginning at UWSP, the program provides a competitive application process for UWSP students to gain entrance into a partner’s ADN program at Mid-State, NTC or Nicolet. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee selection via the competitive application process. Priority for selection is given to students that have: (1) successfully completed pre-nursing and general education requirements, (2) greater credit hours with UWSP, and (3) a higher cumulative GPA. Students may be selected for placement in the ADN program at any of our three partner institutions: Mid-State, NTC or Nicolet.
Upon completion of the ADN, students then complete the RN to BSN Completion program with UWSP.
