Nursing Programs

The Milwaukee Area Technical College Nursing program offers a curriculum that matches programs that are offered in four year colleges and universities maintaining high standards to facilitate credit transfers.

The program does not have a waiting list. Applicants admitted via a petition process. 

Students selected for the program will only be admitted on the basis of MATC district residency, followed by Wisconsin residency and non residents unless otherwise stated.

Petitioning is the formal process of students enrolled in the MATC or eligible for enrollment to submit application documents for entry in the specific program in the School of Health Sciences.

Requirements for the Petition Process

  • Be officially admitted to the MATC with an active code for the RN program
  • Good Academic Standing

  • Complete NLN pre-admission for RN programs
  • Completion of CNA Training
  • Current CPR certification from the American Heart Association, Healthcare Provider Level
  • Health assessment certification with all necessary immunizations
  • Criminal Background check

The school notifies students the status of their application within 45 days after the deadline for petition has passed. If your are selected, you are required to attend mandatory program specific orientations or will forfeit your seat.
