University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Now Offering Master of Science in Nursing

Ever since she was 19, Cindy Olli has given compassionate care to all sorts of patients. She and her team members in nursing have made many life saving decisions in many emergencies. She has worked with patients to provide counseling and helped them to better their lives and to make the most of each day. She also has been a strong advocate for the nursing profession.

She began as a Licensed Practical Nurse, and then an Associate Degree Registered Nurse, and then earned her bachelor’s degree. And now she has decided to pursue her master’s degree in nursing through the UW-Green Bay Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Leadership and Management in Health Systems online program.

UW-Green Bay is having its first class of MSN students this fall, and Olli is one of them. She says that she chose the UW-Green Bay MSN program because of the convenient online format and because the quality of the program is high.

She says she selected the school for her BSN because of the online format and because a coworker recommended it. She said that being a full time nurse and a mother meant that going to regular classes at the nearest college was impossible as it was an hour away. She discovered that the on campus and online programs were essentially the same, with the only difference how the classes were delivered.

Olli thinks that the RN to BSN program gave her the skills that she needed to go for leadership roles in nursing, including her current job as CNO for her local hospital in Michigan.

When she found that UWGB intended to offer the MSN, she was sure that that was the program she wanted. She was looking for an online MSN for several years and had not found one that fitted her needs. Olli said that there are many strong online MSN programs, but she wanted to stay with a traditional non-profit school that has online classes as part of the curriculum. She is very confident that she will get a good education at UWGB.
