The UWEC nursing program deepened my passion for nursing more than I ever thought possible. It prepared me to approach my current practice as a registered nurse holistically with a focus on the patient above all else. This program inspired me to consistently strive to be the best I can be. I have such trust and loyalty in the UWEC College of Nursing and Health Sciences, that I chose to continue my education here in the Doctorate of Nursing Practice Program.

Take the next step in your nursing career

As part of the collaborative UW BSN@HOME program, UW-Eau Claire's RN to BSN Completion Program offers a hybrid of both online and face-to-face coursework. This approach gives you the flexibility of continuing to work in the field and complete your homework at your own pace — while still benefiting from in-person instructor feedback, the ability to ask questions and make valuable peer connections.

For many students, this is a major selling point of our program. Hear more from instructors, current students and alum on why having a mixture of online and in-person classes makes our program such a great fit for them.
