This degree is intended for students holding either the Associate’s Degree in Nursing or a Diploma in Nursing. Students are granted the BSN from UW-Stevens Point and are therefore subject to its graduation requirements. The UW-Stevens Point provides all student-related services (advising, financial aid, registration, etc.). The UW-Stevens Point BSN completion program is seeking accreditation from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and is approved by the Wisconsin State Board of Nursing.
UW-Stevens Point BSN Completion Degree
Coursework will prepare registered nurses for leadership roles and broaden theoretical understanding and clinical skills for caring for patients in various acute, community, and ambulatory health settings. Students will increase skills of technology and communication while gaining a greater appreciation for the interdisciplinary aspect of nursing practice.
Students may register for nursing courses offered locally in
face-to-face or hybrid formats, or register for the same nursing courses (fully
online) from the BSN@Home internet-based
website. Course registration procedures differ between the locally offered and
BSN@Home option. Students, depending on their preference, may alternate between
either course offering format as they complete the program.
The core curriculum consists of 18 required credits.
Additional electives are available through BSN@Home. The BSN@Home website
offers multiple sections of each core course each semester with limited
sections offered in the summer. The BSN@Home courses are offered by UW-Stevens
Point and five other UW campuses; therefore, students taking these courses can
expect instruction to originate from any of these other UW universities.
Students will be assigned an advisor who will assist them in
planning their program and be available for ongoing advising. Students are
encouraged to check their email accounts regularly for notifications, personal
correspondence, and updates from their advisors.
