When you support the programs in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, you are really helping people receive quality care. The knowledge, understanding and experience UW-Eau Claire students receive from our expert faculty, innovative simulation labs, hands-on clinical experiences and cultural immersion programs means they graduate prepared to provide excellent health care for patients and communities.

Support the general needs of the Nursing program with a gift to the Nursing Advancement Fund. The Nursing Advancement Fund is used to meet the needs of the Nursing Department that cannot be met by the state-assisted university operating budget and enables the Nursing Department to take advantage of opportunities to advance the cause of the department. Examples of fund use include, but are not limited to, support of faculty-student research projects, travel, presentations, curriculum development, alumni relations, guest speakers, technology, and more.

Traditional Nursing

Demand for the undergraduate program is high. The program provides a broad general education for students as well as involving them in ongoing research with professors, and integrating evidence-based practice throughout the program. Traditional nursing undergraduate students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, experience cultural immersion, and study abroad.

Marshfield site

Recognizing a need in central Wisconsin for baccalaureate-prepared registered nurses, Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield and UW-Eau Claire formed a partnership that benefits everyone. Students are able to stay and work in the Marshfield area and earn their degree via distance education classrooms. In return, the hospital benefits from having a pool of local nursing graduates to hire.

BSN completion program

The need for BSN nurses increases every year. Many students have their associate degree and are already working in hospitals. The BSN completion program helps them finish getting their nursing degree with online courses on their own time. Some of the campuses also offer courses on campus and via interactive television. Recent agreements with area technical colleges are also making it easier for students to obtain a baccalaureate degree.

Doctor of nursing practice

Doctor of Nursing Practice

UW-Eau Claire established the DNP in 2009 to help nurses prepare to meet new national education recommendations for advanced practice nurses, which change the entry-level degree from a master's to a doctorate. Apart from collaborations involving the traditional doctoral campuses, this is the first doctoral degree offered by any of the UW System's 11 comprehensive universities.

“A liberal arts education gives you a different perspective of nursing. You are not solely focused on the skills you are learning. Instead you focus on the whole person.”
