As part of UWM’s long-term strategic planning, several UWM schools and colleges are being realigned. The process is underway and will be effective July 1, 2023.
Learn more about how the realignment will impact the College of Nursing.

UW-Milwaukee College of Nursing proudly offers faculty and nursing community research support through the Harriet H. Werley Center for Nursing Research and Evaluation (WCNRE). The WCNRE was established in 1977 under a federal Faculty Research Development Grant.

WCNRE Objectives

  1. Support and facilitate applications for funding of research projects.
  2. Promote research collaboration within the College of Nursing, College of Health Science units, the University, and the public and private sectors.
  3. Support and facilitate the continuing development of faculty expertise and student research.
  4. Support ongoing evaluation activities within the College of Nursing.

WCNRE staff activities are focused on faculty research needs, in particular, faculty applications for research funding. Some services are available to UWM nursing graduate students. Fee-based assistance is available to employees of community and professional agencies.
