Rhonda Powell
Doctoral student and member of the prestigious Jonas Nurse Leaders Scholar Program

The Master of Nursing program is offered to prepare Advanced Generalist Nurses to undertake clinical leadership in a variety of health care settings, implement quality improvement strategies and outcomes-based practice, manage microsystems of care, and to elevate care and promote health.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice program at UWM was approved by the UW System Board of Regents on December 5, 2008 and prepares nurses for the highest academic preparation in clinical nursing, The DNP will prepare practitioners who are able to use their education and expertise in evidence based practice in providing outstanding care and collaborative leadership to improve clinical care delivery, patient outcomes, and system management.

The Ph.D. program in Nursing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee was approved by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents on February 9, 1984, and prepares nurses as scholars to conduct independent and collaborative research, to develop and test theory relevant to nursing, and to improve the quality of care by expanding the body of nursing knowledge. Scholars will be prepared to serve the urban community and improve the general accessibility and acceptability of health care.

Specialization is achieved through an approved program of study and includes program elements of course work, dissertation, and direction of faculty advisors. This specialization is focused on a particular area of nursing practice and the social context within which it occurs.

The Center for Nursing Research and Evaluation, the Institute for Urban Health Partnerships, the Center for Cultural Diversity and Health, and the Nursing Learning Resource Center are among the resources of the College of Nursing.
