Prepare for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and a nursing career through a dual-degree program between Taylor and Indiana Wesleyan University. As you approach your sophomore spring semester, you can apply to the Nursing 3+1 Program.
While at Taylor, you may choose an option concentration in Public Health, following the pre-nursing track through the lens of public health. Not only will you analyze how and why people get sick, but you will also investigate the societal stressors and influencers that impact community health. The Pre-Nursing/Public Health concentration will be a great addition to a graduate school application.

The Foundational Core is the key to Taylor’s total education. These classes will give you a big-picture view of how your calling connects with God's purpose for your life, engaging with ideas that will demonstrate how God has given you certain talents and skills to bring healing to the world. Each student who completes the Foundational Core emerges as a well-versed individual, equipped with critical thinking skills, a lifelong love of learning, and an appreciation for God's creation.
Receiving a Bachelor of Science in Health Science from Taylor requires completion of the IWU Nursing Program. If you choose not to join or are not accepted into the program, you can graduate Taylor with a four-year Bachelor’s degree in a related major. Choosing one of Taylor’s other health-focused majors will still allow you to successfully compete with other applicants for graduate and nursing school positions. Because the Health Science major directly correlates with a career in nursing, Taylor recommends all students who are interested in medical school or other medical and allied health careers—such as dentistry, veterinary, physical therapy, or pharmacy—to consider majors in biology, chemistry, exercise science, public health, or psychology.
