College

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.

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.

Department

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. All programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

As a department, we believe high-impact educational experiences, scholarship, and service to our communities enhance students' and faculty's personal and professional growth and inclusivity in our professional and personal lives. Faculty can develop student intercultural immersion experiences, such as working with migrant farm workers in western Wisconsin, the Somali population in northern Wisconsin, and clinical work with the Lakota Sioux nation in South Dakota. Scholarship and research are supported at the college and university levels. Undergraduate students can collaborate with faculty on faculty-mentored scholarly projects through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
