The IWU Experience
Earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing offers students a wide variety of career options, including graduate school. IWU offers integrated educational experiences that combine the presentation of current medical knowledge with practical hands-on learning. Whether they begin the program as incoming freshmen or practicing professionals, all our students graduate fully prepared for service in settings ranging from clinics and hospitals to the mission field.
Led by its own Vice President of Academic Affairs, the IWU School of Nursing consists of three divisions: the Division of Pre-licensure Nursing, the Division of Post-licensure Nursing and the Division of Graduate Nursing. More than 200 full-time, affiliate and adjunct faculty members assist with coursework for our 2,000+ full-time students on the residential campus, at various education centers in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, and online.
How You’ll Learn
The IWU BSN program incorporates both coursework and clinical practice into the curriculum. In addition to general education requirements, courses in anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and others are accompanied by hands-on learning through simulations in our state-of-the-art Fortune Simulation lab.
What You’ll Do
Multiple clinical sites enhance variety and exposure to different settings. Our student nurses learn how to holistically understand patient conditions and situations through an intentional focus on cultural, psychological, developmental and spiritual as well as physical assessments. In addition to local health agencies, students benefit from transcultural nursing experiences throughout the world.
After completing the degree program, students apply for a nursing license from the state board of nursing and sit for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). Our Nursing graduates exceed the NCLEX national pass rate, and have for the past five years.
Where You’ll Go
Students earning a degree from Indiana Wesleyan University School of Nursing will soon discover that IWU opens many doors for career experiences of all kinds. We have, for example, wonderful global relationships with La Gonave Wesleyan Hospital in La Gonave, Haiti; Zimba Mission Hospital in Zambia, Africa; and Shenyang Medical College in Shenyang, China. Our School or Nursing students can also visit Bulgaria, Jamaica, Kenya, Belize and Ecuador to experience and engage withg new cultures.
