Through the BSN@Home program at UW-Madison, registered nurses (associate degree or diploma-prepared) residing in Wisconsin can improve their marketability and strengthen their nursing preparation to practice effectively in increasingly complicated environments.

Is this Program Right for You?

BSN@Home offers an innovative way for registered nurses who hold a two-year degree to earn their bachelor’s degree. Most nursing coursework is done online and, depending on what general education requirements you need to complete, you may be able to take those courses through UW-Colleges online.


The BSN@Home program is a collaboration of nursing programs at six UW-System institutions: Madison, Eau Claire, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, and Stevens Point. You may choose any of the participating schools to be your “home” institution and the University from which you will earn your degree. In the Madison program, two nursing courses involve periodic face-to-face sessions in addition to time spent online. Through agreements with the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS), up to 60 credits from associate degree coursework may transfer, including up to 30 nursing credits.
