Nursing is one of the most highly regarded and rewarding professions in the healthcare industry. Nurses provide patient-centered care in hospitals, doctor's offices, schools and other settings.
Most students will enter the program as Pre-Nursing majors and will progress to the Nursing major after successful completion of required core curriculum. However, students who are invited to scholarship day and/or enrolled in the Honors Program will be directly admitted into the Nursing major upon admission to Walsh University.
Annie Resetar - Class of 2019
When I started college, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to make it through the nursing program, especially with a hearing impairment. Hearing in the classroom was hard enough, but the clinical setting posed a whole new challenge. I feared that I had chosen the wrong career path, and that my disability was going to keep me from my dream. But Walsh University’s Office of Accessibility Services, faculty and staff sat down and worked with me, helping me to excel in the classroom.
