What's new


The Schools of Nursing has a NEW means of communication.  A hotline was created to assist with providing information regarding nursing students' Epic classes (time, location & reminders) and how to contact members within the Schools of Nursing.  The number to call is 1-414-337-CALL (2255).   If you have any additional suggestions to add to this hotline, please contact Tracy Blair at

This is MY Children's Career Days:

All nursing students are welcome to attend; freshman to senior level status

This informational day explains the different roles and responsibilities a Children's nurse has in Acute Care, ER, HOT, OR, NICU, PICU, PACU and Transport.

Virtual tours will be given during the presentation, along with a nursing forum for nursing students to ask candid questions to Children's nurses who work in these departments.
