Welcome to the Henry Predolin School of Nursing
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 Henry Predolin School of Nursing partners with over 70 community agencies in and around Southcentral Wisconsin for clinical placements in UW Hospitals and Clinics, American Family Children’s Hospital, UnityPoint Health-Meriter Hospitals and Clinics, SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital, William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital, Agrace Hospice and multiple public health sites and public/private school sites just to name a few. In addition to clinical placements, our students also utilize the state-of-the art simulation lab at the Center for Healthcare Education and Simulation (CHES). Undergraduate student can launch their graduate education by taking online graduate courses while finishing their last two semesters in the nursing program.
Our Master’s and Graduate Certificate programs are designed to address the needs of working professionals. Course offerings are offered in a fully online format to accommodate working nurses’ busy schedules. The six Master’s of Nursing Science in Nursing concentrations (MSN Administration, MSN Education, MSN Clinical Nurse Specialist, MSN Clinical Nurse Specialist in Adult Gerontology, MSN Family Nurse Practitioner, MSN Nurse Practitioner Primary Care Adult Gerontology) offered at Edgewood College range from 30-48 credits. Program curricula are designed to develop nurses into nurse leaders, educators, and practitioners with advanced knowledge, humanistic values, and the ability to contribute to the changing, diverse healthcare environment. These programs provide individuals with the opportunity to pursue professional development within a scholarly environment.
The School of Nursing also offers a doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Executive Leadership degree. This post-master’s program prepares individuals for advanced nursing leadership positions. Courses are offered in a blended online format that requires students to be on campus a few times per semester with the rest of the work done through online facilitation. 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.
