Welcome to the UWM College of Nursing!
Located in a beautiful neighborhood on the shores of Lake Michigan, the College is a vibrant academic community that is committed to innovations in teaching and learning and the discovery and translation of science in the advancement of health for all. Our diverse faculty group is world class and the College is the home to four American Academy of Nursing “Living Legends,” and the immediate past president of Sigma Theta Tau International, the nursing honorary society.

In the top 15% of nursing programs in the nation, according to US News & World Report graduate rankings, UWM faculty lead the nation in cutting edge research in a number of areas including self-management science, nursing informatics, nursing models of primary health care, family care in acute and pediatric settings, interventions with elders, including Alzheimer’s patients, chronic care management, and health equity. We are proud of our interprofessional, corporate and community-driven partnerships to improve health care and health for all.

An early adopter of online education, UWM offered the nation’s first asynchronous Online PhD in Nursing program in 2003. Online options are available for BSN completion students, undergraduates, and graduate programs as well as for graduate students pursuing the Post Masters FNP Certificate, DNP, and PhD. Online courses are taught by the same strong faculty as our campus-based programs and both attract students from across the nation and around the world.

As the largest nursing program in Wisconsin, we are also exceptionally proud of our more than 8,000 alumni who provide quality evidence-based care, inspiring education, exceptional research and administrative leadership to improve health care nationally and across the globe.
