Students at Illinois Wesleyan’s School of Nursing benefit from individualized attention. Opportunities for student distinction include awards and scholarships, plus leadership and involvement in on-campus chapters of professional organizations.
"Everyone that is part of the nursing program at Wesleyan is extremely supportive and always there to help. This includes all the faculty, labbies, and really anyone in the nursing building! Because our class is so small, we are all very close; it is sort of like a home away from home. We are able to get complete one on one attention from professors and faculty, which gives us so much confidence and opportunity for experience." Donna, '13
