UW-Milwaukee has long labored in the shadow of UW-Madison, but at least our local UW affiliate could pride itself on being one of only two UW schools awarding doctorate degrees. Take that, Stevens Point.

But look out, here comes UW-Oshkosh, which is graduating its first doctors, Doctors of Nursing Practice, on Saturday. The four come from Oshkosh, Appleton and Green Bay.

The university has posted a short video of the graduates-to-be talking about their degrees. One of them notes that as of 2015, nurse practitioners will need doctorate degrees to break into the profession.

Some have blamed the country’s nursing shortage on increasing educational requirements, though the aging baby boomer bubble may be a more significant factor.

Anyway, a round of Pomp and Circumstance is in order.
