Are you currently enrolled in the nursing program at Western Technical College or Madison Area Technical College and you would like to take the general education and nursing support classes that are part of a Bachelor of Science Degree at Viterbo University? Now you can do that by applying to the Professional Pathways Program. Viterbo University is piloting this new program at Western Technical College and Madison Area Technical College during the 2012-13 school year.

Professional Pathways allows opportunities for Western Technical College and Madison Area Technical College students to build in bachelor degree pre-requisites, which may allow a seamless pathway into the BSN Completion program at Viterbo University.

There are two pathway options for associate degree students.  The pathways include:

  • Professional Nursing Bridge – for students in the second semester of nursing core courses at Western Technical College or Madison Area Technical College
  • Professional Steps – for students waiting to start the nursing core courses at Western Technical College or Madison Area Technical College

To apply: The following enrollment requirements on the application form must be completed and signed by the Associate Dean of Western’s or Madison’s nursing program. Then submit to Viterbo’s Center for Adult Learning, 900 Viterbo Drive, La Crosse, WI 54601 (adultlearning@viterbo.edu). Once submitted, you will work with a BSN Completion Program Recruiter to assist in applying and selecting appropriate courses.
