UWM’s School of Nursing is home to Wisconsin’s largest nursing program, and for more than 50 years, it has provided life-saving training to health professionals in Wisconsin’s commercial, cultural and economic capital.
Across southeastern Wisconsin, our competitive, collaborative nursing program is valued for its ability to prepare science-based, compassionate nurse leaders through innovative, quality educational programs.
Preparing entry-level nursing professionals is only the beginning of our commitment to meeting the needs of diverse, in-demand nursing professions.
Advancing Science in Nursing
From pediatrics to geriatrics, community clinics to pharmaceutical labs, our faculty conduct research and scholarship that advances science in nursing and health, and they don’t do this alone.
The school recruits students from first-year undergraduates to online PhD candidates, nursing administrators to nurse practitioners, for research and mentorship opportunities that prepare School of Nursing graduates at every practice level to transform health care delivery and health policy.
