Our Traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing and 12-Month Post-Baccalaureate Bachelor of Science in Nursing programs are highlighted by an exceptional faculty, diverse clinical site offerings, excellent facilities, and impressive NCLEX pass-rates. We offer small classes that allow for engaging teaching styles and promote active student learning. The School of Nursing partners with over 60 community agencies in and around Dane County for clinical placements including UW Hospitals and Clinics, The American Family Children's Hospital, Meriter Hospitals and Clinics, St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center and the Veteran's Administration Hospital. In addition to clinical placements, our students also utilize the state-of-the-art simulation lab at the Center for Nursing Excellence.
Our Graduate and Post-Master's Certificate programs are designed to address the needs of working professionals. Course offerings are in the evenings to accommodate busy schedules. The Master of Science in Nursing Administration program is 36 credits, with course offerings in the fall, spring and summer semesters. Specialty courses in the Nursing Administration program focus on managing healthcare systems, roles of the executive in a health setting, business communication, organizational behavior, and healthcare finance. Offerings include MBA courses through the School of Business. Application of this degree is often seen in healthcare management roles, executive administration, as well as in program planning and evaluation. In addition, the graduate nursing program at Edgewood College offers a practicum opportunity that exposes students in a concentrated experience of interest.
In the fall of 2013, we launched our Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Leadership degree. This post-master’s program prepares individuals for advanced nursing leadership positions. DNP students progress through a curriculum grounded in translating research evidence into best practices that ensure community members receive the highest quality care.
Our students and alumni have assumed leadership roles in education and administration throughout our community. Graduates have also been successful in becoming certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We are proud of all of them, and welcome you to our program.
