School of Nursing Open House
Annually in Fall

The School of Nursing Open House will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2013.

Would you like to know which high school courses will give you the best preparation for the nursing major? Are you wondering what it would be like to be a college student who happens to major in nursing?  What are “clinicals” like?  What should you be looking for in a university and a nursing program, and how do you find the “right fit’?  What makes programs different, and what goes on in a nursing lab?

Have these and other questions answered as you join faculty and students of the Illinois Wesleyan University School of Nursing for an informative session learning about our program. This Open House will provide prospective students and parents an opportunity to hear about high school preparation, application, and all that the School of Nursing has to offer students.

If you are just beginning your college search, or nearing the end, we welcome you!
