The UW name is recognized nationally for excellence in education. UW-Green Bay offers high quality, user-friendly programs with flexible transfer policies and excellent student support. Our faculty are knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and experienced in teaching adult learners.

The BSN curriculum prepares nurse leaders, critical thinkers, effective communicators, managers, advocates, teachers, change agents, and providers of care who use autonomous nursing interventions as well as culturally congruent and ethically sound nursing care. As a leader in RN to BSN education, we offer three tracks to allow access to any RN currently licensed by any state in the United States. “BSN-LINC” has been designed for students living outside of Wisconsin looking to complete their BSN degree online. “BSN@Home” is the online track for Wisconsin students. Our “Campus Track” is for students living within driving distance of Green Bay wishing to attend “face to face” classes on our campus. 

Our “MSN-LINC” program is online and available to BSN prepared RNs licensed by any state in the United States.  The MSN curriculum provides advanced coursework in leadership and management to improve care at multiple levels across the continuum of healthcare settings.  Core content includes leadership, fiscal management, evaluative methods, information systems, healthcare policy, communication and organizational behavior.

  • Wisconsin nursing colleagues call to action

    A few weeks ago, you were notified the Wisconsin Legislators in the Senate were considering bills which support the approval of a Nurses’ License Plate for Wisconsin nurses, friends and families. We are happy to announce similar bills are being circulated NOW in the Assembly. These bills are similar in nature to those proposed in the Senate. Please call or email your Representative in the Assembly today. Ask their support Assembly Bill 702 which supports a bill to create a nurses’ license and for their support of Assembly Bill 754 which eliminates the need for legislation to create a new license plate. We are not confident both bills will be passed therefore their support of both bills is essential.

    Although we provided testimony to the Assembly’s Transportation Committee this week, it is unclear if both bills will progress to a full vote in the Assembly. Therefore we ask you contact your representative today. You can easily find your legislator at the web site below, email or call them directly.

    UW-Green Bay and the Professional Program in Nursing are looking for your help to fund the Mimi and Ken Kubsch Endowed Scholarship to support our nursing students. Dr. Sylvia (Mimi) Kubsch, along with the help of Sweet Willow Naturals of Green Bay, has developed a Lavender Lullaby Aromatherapy Spritzer. Dr. Kubsch’s interest in holistic nursing, and her belief that nurses should understand and use integrative healthcare with patients/families, was the creative force behind creating the essential oil with benefits for relaxation and sleep. Your purchase of this spritzer helps support the Kubsch scholarship while providing you with an evidence-based relaxation/sleep support tool that doesn’t have the side effects of many other options available on the market today.

    Cost of the spritzer is $9.95 a bottle. $2 from your purchase of each bottle is a tax-deductible donation to the Kubsch Endowed Scholarship. The spritzer can be purchased at the following locations:

    •Sweet Willow Naturals: Providing education, support and products for your health and wellness!
    ◦Mail order option available
    •The Phoenix Bookstore: http://www.thephoenixbookstore.com/...
    ◦Will be available for online purchase in the near future
    •Professional Program in Nursing Office
    ◦Rose Hall 325, UW-Green Bay

    The Mimi and Ken Kubsch Endowed Scholarship has been created to recognize Dr. Mimi Kubsch and her late husband. Mimi and Kenny’s commitment to nursing education and healthcare has led to establishing the endowed scholarship. Scholarships have been available to less than 2% of UW-Green Bay nursing students. The average UW-Green Bay graduate has an average of $26,000 in loan debt. By making a Nursing Degree more affordable for students, the talent and quality of the healthcare community will flourish.

    Mimi KubschDr. Sylvia (Mimi) Kubsch began her career at UW-Green Bay in 1980 when she was hired to develop the RN to BSN program. She has been instrumental in expanding the program, making it available online with the BSN@HOME program for Wisconsin students in 1995 and then BSN-LINC in 2000 for students across the U.S. Most recently, she assisted in starting the UW-Green Bay MSN Program.

    Dr. Kenneth Kubsch, Mimi’s husband, began his medical practice in 1975 in Internal Medicine. He served his patients at the West Side Clinic and later Prevea until his retirement in 2006. He was a trusted and caring doctor, even making home visits when this practice had long since been discontinued by most others in the medical community. Ken passed away in 2009.

    If you would like to make a gift donation to the Kubsch Scholarship, you can do so through the UW-Green Bay Foundation website: https://secure.qgiv.com/for/uowgb/r... or by calling (920) 465-2074.

    Nursing Program graduate Teresa Talmadge met UW-Green Bay Nursing Prof. Susan Gallagher-Lepak for the first time (in person, at least) prior to mid-year commencement Saturday (Dec. 19) at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

    Talmadge, of suburban Kingwood, Texas, near Houston, made her first trip to the UW-Green Bay campus this weekend to receive her bachelor’s in Nursing. She took all of her coursework online, as many students choose to do given the solid reputation of UW-Green Bay’s online BSN option.

    She left cool 60-degree weather in Houston for a brisk 20-degree day in Green Bay, but relished the chance to soak up the warm commencement-day atmosphere.

    Originally from Northwestern Wisconsin (St. Croix Falls), Talmadge earned her nursing diploma a dozen years ago at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. She relocated to Texas and today works as an emergency room nurse.

    Knowledgeable about the quality of the UW System from earlier studies at Stevens Point, she followed a friend’s recommendation to enroll online with UW-Green Bay when she decided a bachelor’s degree (and perhaps graduate studies to follow) would suit her nursing career and interests.

    “It’s a very good program,” Talmadge says of UW-Green Bay Nursing. “I would absolutely recommend it to others.”
