With new transfer agreements in place between Madison Area Technical College (MATC) and local nursing schools, including the UW–Madison School of Nursing, associates degree level nurses graduating from MATC have a more streamlined path towards earning their bachelor’s degree. Linda D. Scott, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FNAP, FAAN, dean of the School of Nursing, says that the partnership embodies the Wisconsin Idea by removing barriers to access and making the admissions process less complicated by guiding students through the requirements in their college careers. “As a result, students have the comfort of knowing if they have these elements in place, they will be accepted to UW–Madison,” Scott said.
