Direct Entry MSN Online Coursework and On-Campus Learning Option

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 campus-based coursework in Milwaukee. Classes 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 online learning environment in Pleasant Prairie allows students to experience an interactive and engaging virtual classroom. Students complete learning activities, readings and assignments asynchronously, when it’s convenient for them. It also provides 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 to facilitate understanding and retention of complex nursing concepts.

Virtual Role-playing Activities

Throughout your completion of the direct entry MSN online coursework, you will use virtual activities to learn how to think like a nurse and make clinical judgments in a safe environment.

From single-topic activities to comprehensive case studies, you’ll be able to engage with your studies and start building the critical problem-solving and decision-making skills that are essential in the nursing profession.
