Our program combines a solid foundation in the liberal arts with hands-on nursing study.

St. Norbert College and Bellin College Partnership: Nursing Program

Caring for others is at the core of a nurse’s work. From clinics to schools to churches to homes, nurses provide both the expert care and warm attention that improve physical health and put people at ease. 

When you pursue a degree in nursing, you equip yourself for a calling at the intersection of science and support. In your work, technical skill, leadership and interpersonal ability come together for the good of those in your care.

Through St. Norbert College’s partnership with Green Bay’s Bellin College, you can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing with a liberal arts foundation. The program has two stages:
  • First you live on the St. Norbert College campus as you complete two years of liberal arts study under the guidance of a pre-nursing adviser.
  • Then you transition seamlessly into Bellin College’s 15-month specialty nursing program, studying under expert nursing faculty.
All told, you’ll complete the program in only three-and-a-half years, start to finish. Upon completion, you’ll be a graduate with a degree issued by Bellin College, but you’ll be considered an alum of both institutions of higher learning.
