The Department of Nursing offers a traditional BSN program in Eau Claire and Marshfield, WI. In addition, the department offers an accelerated second degree program in Eau Claire, a statewide collaborative BSN completion program, and an MSN program. A Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) was launched the Summer of 2010. At the graduate level students select a population of focus (adult/gerontologic or family) and role preparation (education, administration, or advanced clinical practice: nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist). The department is comprised of over 40 full time faculty located at both the Eau Claire and Marshfield sites. Classrooms are connected by live, interactive video. Both distance and on-site programming is provided in the BSN, BSN completion, and MSN programs. The DNP is primarily an online program with on-site immersion days in Eau Claire.  As an integral part of a liberal arts-based, comprehensive university, the nursing programs support collaborative relationships among faculty and students in the College, within the University, and in professional and practice communities.
