School Nursing

We offer two routes to school nursing practice. Graduates of the 18-credit School Nurse Certification Program are eligible to apply for licensure through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. BSN students may complete the program concurrently, and BSN@Home students may complete some of the requirements concurrently and the remainder after graduation. For RNs who need to take a community health course to become a school nurse, Nursing 470 is a 3-credit online course that meets this requirement.
