The message has been consistent for years: There's a nationwide nursing shortage. In times like these, is it possible that the need for compassionate caregivers could be as high as ever? Undoubtedly. But the students of Indiana Wesleyan University's School of Nursing aren't just looking for a job in health care. They want to be motivated by mentors willing to share their knowledge gained by years of practice. They expect a nursing school that offers an integrated educational experience, combining hard facts with hands-on learning. And by committing to changing the world with Christ-like kindness, our nursing degree graduates go a step beyond achieving success; they feel fulfilled. Nursing students at Indiana Wesleyan University will find that their expectations are not only met, but exceeded when they are prepared to enter God's mission field as a nurse!

Our generous transfer policy means that eligible students may be able to enter a program at IWU in advanced standing, shortening their time to completion and saving them money on their education. IWU’s partnerships with other institutions also provide pathways to bachelor’s degree completion, meaning an easier transition to IWU.

More than 200 full-time, affiliate and adjunct faculty members assist with coursework for more than 2,000 full-time students - on the Marion, Indiana, campus, at various sites in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, and online for students around the world. Indiana Wesleyan University offers an array of nursing programs including accelerated programs to meet the ever-growing demand for qualified nurses. 

Whether you're an incoming freshman, a practicing professional, or someone answering a new career calling, IWU offers nursing degree programs that prepare each student for service in venues ranging from hospitals to home health to the mission field.
