Department of Nursing


Thank you for visiting the Wheeling Jesuit University Department of Nursing web page. We are proud to be a part of nursing education in the Jesuit Tradition and hope to foster life-long learners. We are committed to serving vulnerable populations in the Tri-State area.

Our University has several educational offerings to launch a nursing career that include a traditional four year baccalaureate program and a program for those holding a bachelor's degree in another discipline that is completed in 18 months. For registered nurses holding either an associate degree or diploma in nursing we have a bachelor's completion program for working nurses that is on-line. We offer three graduate nursing programs where students earn a masters degree in nursing administration, nursing education, or as a family nurse practitioner. Please take a moment and follow the link to the program you are interested in.

You are invited to contact us for any further questions about our programs.

If you are looking for small class sizes, faculty who know you and take a general interest in your success, and taking your nursing career to the next level we invite you to come and learn with us!
