Rhinelander-based sessions for nurses seeking BSNs

GREEN BAY — The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Professional Program in Nursing is accepting registrations for the 3-credit Community Health Nursing Theory course that will meet in Rhinelander during spring semester 2009.

The course begins in February and will meet monthly on the campus of Nicolet College, with participants attending a Tuesday afternoon/evening session followed by a Wednesday morning session.

The course is part of the UW-Green Bay degree-completion curriculum that allows registered nurses who hold associate degrees or nursing diplomas to complete their bachelor’s degrees. Associate degree graduates are able to transfer approximately one half of the 120 credit hours required from their associate programs, and complete the remainder via a blend of online courses and selected campus-based sessions.

The offering of at least one 2008-09 course at a Northwoods location resumes a tradition of outreach that dates to the mid-1980s when UW-Green Bay nursing instructors began offering classes at satellite locations in Rhinelander and Woodruff to meet rising demand. With improvements in distance-learning technology and web-based teaching, more courses moved online, but UW-Green Bay officials say face-to-face instruction remains the preferred option for some courses.
