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.
"Choosing to attend Illinois Wesleyan to pursue a career in nursing has provided me with an abundance of opportunities to grow both academically and individually. In addition to my involvement in the Student Nurses Association and my position as a Nursing Laboratory Assistant, I am able to participate as a member of the Greek community along with several dance organizations. I balance all my interests thanks to the supportive nursing faculty and staff plus the great learning environment provided by IWU. As I look back on my college experience so far, I couldn't be more thankful that I chose Illinois Wesleyan."
