RN Programs in Wisconsin

Each Registered Nursing program has its own admission requirements. Some RN programs are very selective while others are able to work with applicants to allow them to take pre-nursing courses that were not taken in college preparation classes in high school. Some programs require ACT or SAT scores and others do not. Because of the great variations of admission requirements, it is best if applicants contact each RN program that they are interested in. Admission counselors are sometimes able to work with students to help them gain admittance to the program. Applicants should apply about one year before beginning classes.
