The Madison Area Technical College Nursing Program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission and approved by the WI Department of Regulation. Students who successfully complete the program are eligible to apply to sit for the national licensure exam to acquire a license as a Registered Nurse.
The program is designed to prepare nurses to practice with technical competence and judgment in a range of clinical settings.
The program recognizes the need to develop the proper mental preparation of the profession by emphasizing the need for self-direction, helpful attitudes, an interest in the welfare of other people and the willingness to faithfully follow procedures as well as being able to work and communicate within a healthcare team.
