RN to BS (BSN@Home) Program

Registered nurses who hold a diploma or a degree from a two-year college and wish to earn a baccalaureate degree can complete the RN to BS program. Through this program, students deepen their knowledge of nursing theory and practice through both core and elective courses. The program is offered either full-time or part-time via the Internet. A goal of the program is to provide access so that students may pursue their education without having to relocate.

The UW–Madison School of Nursing is one of five UW campuses providing the BSN@Home Program. The other UW campuses are Eau Claire, Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, and Oshkosh. Students choose UW–Madison as their home institution if they wish to pursue their BS degree from the UW–Madison institution. UW–Madison provides all student-related services (i.e., advising, financial aid, registration) and the unique capstone practicum course that gives students an integrative education experience.
