Faculty

All of the full-time tenure line faculty in the School of Nursing have doctoral degrees – which is especially significant when one understands that Illinois Wesleyan is an undergraduate-only institution, allowing close interaction of undergraduate students with doctorally prepared faculty. Students and faculty at Illinois Wesleyan University's School of Nursing develop close relationships that often last a lifetime.
