It’s the beginning of a new beginning.
You’ve already changed many lives. We believe you can change many more—starting with your own.
How do you know you can apply?
For consideration in this program, applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from a college or university accredited by a nursing accreditation agency approved by the Department of Education. You must hold a current, unencumbered registered nurse license or be eligible for RN licensure in the state of Wisconsin or multi-state compact.
Is there a way to help finance your future?
Graduate students are eligible to apply for loans. To qualify for a federal loan, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applications can be found at fafsa.ed.gov (use Alverno’s federal code 003832). We encourage all students to complete the FAFSA even if you do not anticipate the need for financial aid at this time. If your situation changes, your information will already be on file.
What about my busy schedule?
Classes meet every other weekend for eight weeks during the fall and spring semesters, allowing working professionals the flexibility they need to balance their many commitments and responsibilities.
