Nurses meet the physical and emotional needs of patients in a broad range of settings while providing care prescribed by a physician. Although UW-Platteville does not offer a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, students can begin their studies with us. Students who begin college with nursing as their goal, complete prerequisite courses in two years (or less) and then transfer to a nursing school where they study for another 2-3 years. Students who make their decision later often complete a Bachelor of Science in Biology at UW-Platteville, taking care to also complete prerequisite courses. These students can then complete a BSN in an Accelerated Program at a Nursing School.
