About Marquette University

Based in Wisconsin, Marquette University opened in 1881 as a small, liberal arts college under the auspices of Most Reverend John Martin Henni, the first archbishop of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Today, there are 11 colleges and schools on our Milwaukee campus, with each one providing transformational learning experiences framed within the context of Catholic, Jesuit values.

Serving as extensions of our College of Nursing, we operate satellite locations in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, near Kenosha, that offers an accelerated Direct Entry MSN program for non-nursing professionals and an Indianapolis-based Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner programs for current RNs. (Note: Marquette also offers an on-campus Direct Entry MSN program and AGACNP post-masters certificate at our Milwaukee campus.)
