A Partnership that Offers a Great Future.
Bellin College accepts general education credits from accredited two and four-year institutions. In addition, we’re making it easier for students to receive a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or Radiologic Sciences through articulation, or transfer agreements.
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.
Pre-nursing students take 60 general education credits at St. Norbert College then apply for Bellin College’s 15-Month Option or Junior Transfer Option for their nursing courses. The courses are taught in a sequence of seven, eight week blocks for 15 academic months. Cohorts (small groups of students) start classes in January and June. Students graduate with a Bachelor of Science of Nursing from Bellin College and receive a Pre-Nursing Certificate from St. Norbert College. This is a combination that is sure to impress employers!
Bellin College offers a program that is designed to meet the needs of students who are interested in gaining their Bachelor of Science (BSN) degree in nursing. Bellin’s nursing program requires students to take general education courses as well as nursing courses. As a result, Bellin College works in conjunction with UW-Green Bay to meet the requirements necessary for a BSN degree.
UW-Green Bay fulfills the general education requirements which are highly concentrated in the first two years of Bellin’s program. Nursing courses are included in all four years of Bellin’s program. The freshman year has the main concentration of general education courses; however, preprofessional nursing courses are introduced at this time. In the sophomore year, students complete most of their general education courses at UW-Green Bay and the clinical aspect of nursing begins. The highest concentration of nursing courses are in the junior and senior years; nevertheless, some general education courses, which are offered at UW-Green Bay, remain in the curriculum for students to complete during their last two years in Bellin’s nursing program.
Students must be admitted to both Bellin College and UW-Green Bay. Bellin also offers a Radiologic Sciences major. Detailed information about the competitive admissions policy is available by contacting Bellin College directly.
UW-Colleges and Bellin College have partnered to provide students with a focused educational pathway towards a healthcare career in nursing or radiologic sciences. This partnership gives students who complete credits or a degree at UW-Colleges the ability to transfer to Bellin College and earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or a Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) degree. This is an opportunity for UW-Colleges and Bellin College to work collaboratively to develop our future professionals in healthcare and meet the requirement for nurses and radiologic technologists to have a bachelor’s degree for employability. This is a great opportunity for students interested in a high-demand career in nursing or radiology.
