Direct Entry MSN Coursework

Our Direct Entry MSN program offers students a choice between learning online and learning on-campus. Our Milwaukee Direct Entry MSN program delivers courses on-campus, with some hybrid coursework. And our Pleasant Prairie Direct Entry MSN program follows a format where online nursing theory coursework is delivered through a dynamic e-Learning platform.

The coursework covers advanced nursing concepts and is designed to accommodate all learners. Students can expect the same curriculum and outcomes at both locations.

On-Campus Coursework

Students who prefer face-to-face instruction with their professors may be better suited for our Milwaukee, campus-based coursework. Lectures occur on a set schedule, in a traditional learning format.

You will also experience more face-to-face interaction with your peers, allowing for additional collaboration and support throughout the program.

Online Coursework

The Direct Entry MSN Pleasant Prairie online learning environment allows students an interactive and engaging virtual classroom. Students complete learning activities, readings and assignments asynchronously, when it’s convenient for them, and also include opportunities to meet with faculty and students synchronously in the virtual classroom. Through the e-Learning platform, you’re able to:

  • Read materials and listen to subject matter experts
  • Complete assignments and quizzes
  • Participate in a discussion forum
  • Interact with instructors during chat sessions
  • Engage and learn with peers from a wide variety of backgrounds

Our e-Learning platform accommodates different learning styles so that it becomes easier to understand and retain complex nursing concepts.

Virtual Role-playing Activities

You will use virtual activities to learn how to think like a nurse and make clinical judgments in a safe environment.
