Milwaukee School of Engineering’s School of Nursing has received notification that its Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree has been granted continued accreditation for 10 years, extending to June 2024, with no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements. The B.S. in Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation).
MSOE opened its School of Nursing after a merger with the Milwaukee County General Hospital School of Nursing (MCGHSN) in 1995. The program has been growing steadily ever since, and now includes an accelerated second-degree B.S. in Nursing program and a M.S. in Nursing in Health Care Systems Management degree.
The Ruehlow Nursing Complex, a $3 million, 25,000 square-foot innovative and experiential learning center, opened in 2013. Nursing students actively engage in simulation-based learning opportunities in authentic representations of actual healthcare situations. They integrate theoretical learning into practice through experiential learning opportunities that allow for repetition, feedback, evaluation and reflection.
