If you enroll in the School of Nursing at Illinois Wesleyan University, you are a student of the university who happens to be majoring in nursing. In the program of study over four years, once the first year is completed, you will notice that in every semester, you are taking not only nursing courses, but also courses in the liberal arts. It is a very strong philosophy of the School of Nursing that you will blend the liberal arts with this professional program.
Emily, '13 comments: "I come from a rural area in northern Michigan. What has really appealed to me at IWU is getting to know my classmates and professors on a more personal basis. This has made being far from home so much easier. IWU has been a very good choice for me in both nursing and my liberal arts education.
Admissions for nursing students at Illinois Wesleyan is unlike many universities. First-year students have direct admission to the School of Nursing. Once enrolled, no further application is necessary. Either the IWU application form or the Common Application with IWU supplement may be used. There is not a separate nursing application.
