School of Nursing and Health Sciences
|The School of Nursing and Health Sciences at Illinois Wesleyan extends the University’s
liberal arts tradition to prepare students to be clinical and critical thinkers, strong
leaders and compassionate professionals in whatever healthcare career they pursue.
The comprehensive curriculum across the various programs offered in the School will
prepare students for the ever-changing healthcare field.
While some students are firmly decided on becoming a nurse or physician, there are
many who are interested in healthcare but remain unsure of their ultimate career goals.
Majoring in kinesiology and allied health or public health can set students up for
successful admissions to graduate programs to become physical therapists, athletic
trainers, dietitians, occupational therapists or for a career in public health or
health services management.
