Tips for Researching Wisconsin Nursing Schools

Researching nursing schools can be an overwhelming task. To help streamline the process, we’ve created this list of tips for researching Wisconsin nursing schools.

Define Your Nursing School Requirements

Before you start researching Wisconsin nursing schools, consider your requirements. For instance, if you must live in a certain city in Wisconsin, you’ll want to narrow down your nursing school options to those within driving distance of that location.

  • To help define your nursing school requirements, ask yourself the following questions:
  • Where do I want to live in Wisconsin?
  • Am I willing to relocate to go to a Wisconsin nursing school?
  • What type of nursing degree do I want?
  • What length of nursing program is right for me?

The answers to these questions will help you create a list of nursing school requirements.

Get Organized

Next, create a master document where you will record all of the information uncovered during your research. Also write down your nursing school requirements here to keep them top of mind as you conduct research.

Surf the Web

The Internet is a great place to research Wisconsin nursing schools. Use a search engine to identify schools that meet your specific requirements. For example, to find nursing schools in Green Bay, search, “nursing schools Green Bay Wisconsin.” Visit each school’s Website and take notes on the programs offered, accreditation status, support services, contact information and anything else you feel is important to note.

Hit the Books

Books are a great resource for information on Wisconsin nursing schools. Check out your local bookstore or library for books that list colleges by state, major and price. Jot down notes about each school that interests you.

Visit Wisconsin Nursing Schools

After conducting research on Wisconsin nursing schools, you’ll want to visit the schools that interest you most. Some Wisconsin nursing schools will likely hold information sessions where you can learn more about the programs offered. You’ll also have a chance to ask questions and begin the application process during these sessions.

Before visiting each nursing school, prepare a list of questions. Good questions to have prepared are:

  • What support services and resources does your school offer students?
  • How much is the total cost of the nursing program?
  • What is the average class size?
  • What is the placement rate for the nursing degree program?

Review Your Notes

Now that you’ve conducted research and visited a few Wisconsin nursing schools, it’s time to review all of the information you’ve gathered. Compare the schools on your master document to your nursing school requirements. If you find that a nursing school does not meet most of your requirements, it’s probably not the right school for you.

While researching Wisconsin nursing schools can be overwhelming at times, these tips and tricks can help simplify the process.
