If you are graduating from the ADN (or PN) program, this page is for you!!

WITC’s process of graduating the students’ records may take up to 15 business days AFTER graduation to complete.  Statements of Graduation will NOT be mailed to either the WI Dept. of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) or MN Board of Nursing until all 4 campuses report the students’ records have been completed and a report is run to confirm.  DSPS and MN Board of Nursing require an additional 15-20 business days to process the forms.

In order to give WITC and the applicable Board of Nursing time to process all the paperwork, WITC will only respond to inquiries regarding the process 6 weeks after graduation.  Updates will be posted on the web as they occur.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Wisconsin DSPS application will need to be completed in paper form.  DO NOT try to use the online OLAS system as WITC is not yet set up as an OLAS school.  At this time, WITC is not allowing students to complete NCLEX prior to graduation, so there is no need to complete form # 3049.

  1. Complete appropriate state application
    • Please make sure you are completing the form for the state in which you want to be licensed
    • Each state requires its own form and one state’s form cannot be substituted for another
