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.
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.
