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.

    Do you live in the Green Bay area? Then don’t miss this After Thoughts on complementary medicine and alternative healing with UW-Green Bay Nursing’s own Prof. T. Heather Herdman. Delve into the history of holism — as a philosophy and a way of being. Contrast holism with our current conventional system of health care and learn how it all ties into the renewed interest among individuals to take accountability for their own health care decisions, integrating care from a variety of traditions into their everyday lives.

    This is the first lecture as part of the sixth annual UW-Green Bay After Thoughts series. After Thoughts is a lecture and networking series at UW-Green Bay designed with four goals in mind:

    •connect the community with UW-Green Bay
    •showcase talented women of UW-Green Bay’s faculty, staff and alumni
    •convene women — and the men who support them — for learning, enrichment and fun
    •provide After Thoughts for attendees to take with them

    The 2015-16 series will kickoff on Tuesday, October 6 beginning at 5 p.m. in the Weidner Center Grand Foyer with an hors d’oeuvres reception followed by the program at 5:45 p.m. The first speaker of the year as mentioned will be T. Heather Herdman, UW-Green Bay Associate Professor of Nursing. Heather’s presentation, titled Integrative Healthcare: What’s the Whole Holistic Thing, Anyway?, will demystify holistic and alternative medicine and help us to understand its importance as therapy and treatment options.
