Bellin College and St. Norbert College have a long standing partnership that continues to provide nursing students with the best of both worlds. It combines the best Bachelor of Science in Nursing program in Northeastern Wisconsin with one of the best liberal arts colleges in the Midwest. Bellin College offers students with real-life clinical experience and outstanding lab instruction and St. Norbert College goes above and beyond to show their commitment to prepare students for the demands of the rewarding professions in the health sciences field.
Medical College of Wisconsin – Green Bay and Bellin College entered into a partnership in July 2015 to host simulation and interprofessional educational learning opportunities for students. Bellin College faculty and students will work together with the faculty and students from MCW Green Bay to create case studies and simulated learning experiences with medical students, nursing students, and radiologic sciences students.
The goals are to respect the unique cultures, values, roles and responsibilities and expertise of other health professions; communicate one’s roles and responsibilities clearly to patients, families, and other professionals; and to use unique and complementary abilities of all members of the team to optimize patient care. In addition, students at Green Bay will be able to connect with the Medical College of WI via video conferencing and other methods of electronic communication.
In order to accommodate the needs of both Bellin College and MCW Green Bay, Bellin College completed an 8,500 square foot expansion project in May 2015 to its Health Science Resource Center. Space for the Medical College includes faculty office space, monitoring room, debriefing room, practice/procedure room, storage area, and four exam rooms. MCW Green Bay utilizes standardized patients to learn assessments skills and physical assessment skills. Their standardized patients will have space specific for them to utilize between exams and practice sessions.
