We recognize that completion of an advanced degree in nursing can open doors to new professional opportunities and creates personal satisfaction for nurses.

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.

    Just a week ago, the Professional Program in Nursing went a perfect seven-for-seven in having the first graduates of UW-Green Bay’s online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Leadership and Management Health Systems program show up at commencement. Commencement was the culmination of the efforts of so many to develop, market, and implement the MSN program for a first cohort. Special kudos to program director, Dr. Janet Reilly for all her hard work with the MSN program.

    The MSN degree provides advanced coursework in leadership and management to improve care at multiple levels across the continuum of healthcare settings. All seven graduates — in alphabetical order, Jacquelyn Bailey, Clinton, Md.; Denise Gloede, Madison; Jason Mattson, Green Bay; Martha Pettineo, Lake Bluff, Ill.; Alison Reitzner, Neenah; Ramona Speier, Green Bay; and Roxanne Tienor, Suring — participated in the commencement ceremonies. Bailey, who made the longest commute, has been an active advocate for her profession and met with legislators on Capitol Hill as part of national Student Policy Summit in Washington, D.C., this past March. The new master’s degree gives the UW-Green Bay Professional Program in Nursing alumni in three separate degree areas: the registered nurse (RN) to BSN Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a bachelor’s in Health Information Management and Technology, and the new master’s.
