Help patients maintain and recover their health and well-being

When you choose nursing at UW-Stevens Point, you will find a path to your BSN that is cost effective, flexible and supportive. Students can pursue pre-nursing with our 1+2+1 partnership program or RN to BSN completion for those with an Associate Degree in Nursing in progress. Pre-nursing students start classes at UWSP, transition to the local technical college for four semesters of RN classes then finish their BSN degree with UWSP.

Why choose Nursing at UW-Stevens Point?

When you choose nursing at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, you’ll have two options: pre-nursing (provides prerequisite courses for admission to schools of nursing) or the Bachelor of Science in Nursing completion program designed for associate degree or diploma registered nurses. UW-Stevens Point also offers the pre-nursing program that can satisfy prerequisites to our 1+2+1 nursing partnership program, or to other BSN programs.

What to Expect? 

According to the latest survey conducted by the Wisconsin Center for Nursing, there will be a need for over 8,000 new health care workers per year through 2018 to fill new jobs. Registered nurses are in the greatest demand of all occupations in the state.

Just about anywhere doctors work, RNs do too, including but not limited to hospitals, doctor’s offices, clinics, hospice, emergency rooms, intensive care, government agencies, corporations, and more. In fact, RNs also work in other areas where physicians typically do not, including home health and schools. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over half of all RNs work in hospitals.
