Nursing majors at Elmhurst spend their first two years studying biology, chemistry, communication, and psychology. They also work closely with their advisors to construct a schedule of other relevant courses that will provide them with a solid base of knowledge.
Students officially enter the nursing program if they have met the requirements and have been accepted.
Elmhurst nursing graduates are awarded the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in nursing. They are then eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), which enables them to receive their licenses as registered nurses (RNs).
