Nursing Schools and Colleges in Wisconsin

Located in the North-Central of the United States, Wisconsin is part of the Midwest and Great Lakes regions. Its border touches Minnesota in the West and Lake Michigan in the East, Illinois in the South and Lake Superior in the North. It is the 20th most populous state of the country and 23rd most extensive. Wisconsin’s capital is Madison but the largest city is Milwaukee. The state consists of 72 counties with an overall warm climate. The beauty of its landscape includes waters, woods, prairies, and cityscapes.


In the healthcare department, the currently registered nurses earn an approximate salary in the range of $70000 to $71000. However it has been noticed that a fresher nurse would earn around $58000 per annum. There are 29 colleges and universities across the state which offer various nursing programs that include all associate degree courses. However one major point which should be taken into consideration is that the cost of living in Wisconsin is 7% higher than the national average.
