Welcome to the UW-L Pre-Nursing website

Students planning to enter the nursing profession may take pre-nursing courses at UW-La Crosse in preparation for transfer to a school that offers a nursing program. Pre-nursing students need to be aware of the requirements of the nursing program to which they plan to transfer. Please click here or on the sidebar to the left for links to nursing schools around the region.

The UW-Madison partnership with Gundersen-Lutheran Medical Center (Western Campus in La Crosse) has been discontinued effective April 2012, including placement for the Fall 2012 nursing cohort. Many students are still interested in transferring to Madison for nursing, so more information is available by clicking here or on the sidebar to the left.

UW-L students may add a “pre-nursing” designation as a second major for advising purposes, but a valid first major is required to graduate from UW-L. The pre-nursing advisor is:
