College of Nursing + Health Sciences Alumni + Community

We value our community connections

Alumni and community are a vital part of our student's success at the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. It is through collaboration and partnership with our friends, alumni, and both private and corporate organizations that we sustain academic excellence and research in our programs.

We appreciate the continuing support of alumni and community and strive to keep them up-to-date with news and information from our College. We are always happy to have alumni stop in for a visit or email us at nursing@uwec.edu. We hope to see or hear from you soon!

Nursing Preceptorship Program

If you are a Nurse Practitioner, Physician, or Physician Assistant you can become a preceptor and help prepare our Nurse Practitioners of the future! Our accredited Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree prepares nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and nurse administrators with a population focus of adult-gerontological or family health.

Benefits for you and your agency
  • Adjunct Faculty Status (upon review) with access to UW-Eau Claire library resources and ticket discounts
  • Recertification credit from ANCC
  • Attract more providers to your agency through our preceptorship program - many NPs practice where they completed their clinical experiences

I learned as much about new research and guidelines from students as they learned from me, so it was a shared learning experience.

Getting the practice you need

Learning from a book is one thing, but when you get to practice what you've learned on something that reacts and sounds like a real patient, those lessons stick with you. See the resources UWEC offers nursing students to get the practice they need.
