Athletic Training Undergraduate Program


Nebraska Wesleyan University’s undergraduate Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). However, starting in August of 2022, students will no longer be accepted into the NWU undergraduate athletic training program.

Starting in fall 2022, first year undergraduate students interested in earning an athletic training degree can seek admission into the Master of Athletic Training through NWU’s 3+2 program. Students on this track will declare an undergraduate major in exercise science and apply for admission into the graduate athletic training program during their junior year. They will begin taking graduate-level courses as seniors, and can earn both a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Athletic Training in five years.

Goals of the program:

Upon completion of the Nebraska Wesleyan Athletic Training Program, students will:

  1. Develop mastery of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of an entry-level athletic trainer.
  2. Be prepared for employment in a variety of athletic training and health care settings.
  3. Identify injuries and other medical conditions commonly seen in physically active individuals, including members of different cultures and socioeconomic statuses.
  4. Recognize the importance of being involved in and networking through professional organizations.
  5. Value ethical principles and behavior required of a health care professional.
