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 optional concentration in Public Health, following the pre-nursing track through the lens of public health. You’ll analyze how and why people get sick, and 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.
*Taylor’s financial aid package only applies to your time at Taylor. Individual scholarship packages vary. Contact your Admissions Counselor for more information.
Due to a unique partnership between Taylor and IWU, students who are accepted into this competitive program will spend their senior year studying Nursing on the Indiana Wesleyan campus, located 20 minutes from Taylor in Marion, Indiana. With three years at Taylor and 14 months at IWU, you will earn two Bachelor degrees (a BS in Health Science from Taylor and a BSN from IWU) at a cost comparable to earning a single four-year degree.

A Taylor liberal arts education will prepare you to live and work in a fast-changing world. It also goes a step further: laying a strong spiritual foundation that cultivates wisdom. You’ll become 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 Health Science, Chemistry, Exercise science, Public Health, or Psychology.
