The UWM School of Nursing curriculum is divided into two parts: pre-nursing and professional major. Students need to complete the following to apply to the professional nursing major:

  • English and math competencies
  • Prerequisite nursing courses. Upon graduation, students are ready to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to earn licensure as a registered nurse.

The BS in Nursing curriculum provides students an opportunity to explore health care at a broad level while completing the required UWM General Education Requirements (GER) in the first two years. The final two years of the program prepare students as professional nurses through courses, clinical experiences and simulation.
