Nebraska Wesleyan University’s nursing program has a sterling reputation. And that reputation is growing.

Last year, the March of Dimes honored one NWU professor (Prof. Sue Gabriel) and two NWU students (Sydney Wergin and Cassie Newton) as Nebraska Nurses of the Year.

And this year, NWU added another Nebraska Nursing Student of the Year in Katie Noble of Grand Island, Neb.

These March of Dimes honors combine with Prof. Jamie Hilderbrand’s 2018 Emerging Leader Award from the Nebraska Action Coalition - Future of Nursing.

Our direct-entry traditional BSN program means future nurses can enter NWU as first-year students with full confidence that they are also accepted into our respected nursing program. (No more keeping your fingers crossed and hoping to be admitted once prerequisites are complete.)
