Major in Nursing

Baccalaureate Program: Prelicensure Option

Students who choose to major in nursing begin with two years of study in biology, chemistry, psychology and communication. With its primary mission to prepare its graduates for careers as professional nurses, the nursing major ensures that each student has a strong foundation in science and other elements of the liberal arts before they begin their focus in the field of nursing.

By working closely with their advisors, nursing students construct a schedule of relevant courses that will provide them with a solid base of knowledge. Students apply to the nursing program at or near completion of all prerequisite courses. The nursing program of study requires formal admission to the program.

Elmhurst nursing graduates are awarded the bachelor of science degree with a major in nursing. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), which enables them to receive their licenses as registered nurses (RNs).
