The School of Nursing at Illinois Wesleyan extends the University’s liberal arts tradition to prepare exceptional thinkers, compassionate professionals and leaders for nursing and global health care.

Our nursing students have the opportunity to conduct collaborative research with nursing faculty, pursue internships in a chosen healthcare field, and – unusual for a nursing program – study abroad.

Students are able to begin clinical experience in their sophomore year. They may choose to pursue a minor, including Hispanic Studies, Human Services Management, or Health.

"Choosing to attend Illinois Wesleyan and pursue a career in nursing has provided me with an abundance of opportunities to grow both academically and personally. During the past four years I have been able to become a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, participate in Greek life on campus, earn a summer internship as a student nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and conduct my own Honors Research Study with one of my nursing professors, Dr. Kerr. All of these accomplishments are tied directly to the supportive nursing faculty and great learning environment provided by Illinois Wesleyan. As a senior looking back on my college experience, I couldn't be more thankful that I chose Illinois Wesleyan."

The University specializes in undergraduate education with small class sizes. Nursing students receive close, personal attention from experienced faculty with clinical expertise in many nursing specialties.

Illinois Wesleyan offers all applicants direct admission to the nursing program.

A unique opportunity at Illinois Wesleyan University is to balance one's passion for participating in Division III athletics and majoring in nursing. Meet our student athletes.
