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.

The Foundational Core 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. 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.
