Join an institution built on a foundation of excellence, liberal education, and inclusivity. The College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CNHS) fosters the transformation of individuals at the undergraduate and graduate levels into leaders in professional nursing practice, education, and scholarship. We value excellence in education, experiential learning, leadership, life-long learning, practice, and scholarship; diversity and eliminating barriers to participation; integrity; innovation; social responsibility inclusive to a positive influence on health, respect, social justice, accountability, and sustainability; finally, health and quality of life. In doing so, we endeavor to transform the lives of our students, the practice of our profession, and the health of all we serve.

As part of the college, you become a member of two communities and gain partnerships with the premier healthcare providers in the State of Wisconsin. The college is comprised of the Department of Nursing with two site locations: Eau Claire, WI, located on the UW-Eau Claire campus, and in partnership with the prestigious Marshfield Clinic Health System, the second site in Marshfield, WI, located on the UW-Stevens Point – Marshfield campus. In addition to Marshfield Clinic Health System, the College of Nursing partners with the world acclaimed Mayo Clinic Health System.


The Department of Nursing offers four degree programs: traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), Bachelor of Science in Nursing Completion (BSNC), Master of Science in Nursing Education (MSN), and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). UW-Eau Claire is the only public university in northwestern Wisconsin that offers a baccalaureate nursing degree.
