Transfer agreement aims to address nursing shortage

A new transfer agreement between Madison College and the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing hopes to address nursing workforce needs by creating greater access to nursing education, according to a release from Madison College. The agreement will ease the transfer of Madison College students who have earned their associate degree in nursing into the UW–Madison School of Nursing’s BSN completion track, knowns as BSN@Home. The degree-completion program pathway provides a flexible part-time, online option for working registered nurses (RNs) looking to expand their career opportunities in health care.
