CURRICULUM FOCUS
Indiana Wesleyan University-Marion Healthcare Program
UDC Contributor

Did you hear that? The happy tears and whisper of, “you saved me.” The heartfelt voices that say, “I almost gave up but you helped me through.” These are the sounds of your life calling to spread compassion and care around the world. And you can fulfill that calling with the Indiana Wesleyan University nursing program. IWU doesn’t just prepare you to wear the white jacket and ultra-comfort clogs — the program motivates you with hard facts, hands-on learning, and inspiring mentors who volunteer their talents at local clinics and care so much about their students that they take to Twitter to keep in touch. From pre-licensure nursing to graduate, you can learn with 200 full-time, affiliate, and adjunct faculty members between intimate classes of 15 students or less and high-tech simulation labs. Practice with virtual IVs, high-fidelity simulation mannequins, digital otoscopes, and you will be prepared to lead others in pharmacology, maternal nursing, community health nursing, and more after you graduate.

Michelle
Marketing Coordinator, Class of 2011

U I was a student in the adult education program and attended the Indianapolis North location. I enjoyed the small class size and six-week class schedule, which made it very convenient to earn my degrees as a working professional.

Featured Alumni Review
Mia
Blog and Social Media Manager, Class of 2016

U The strategic communications program at IWU gave me one-on-one attention from academic advisors and professors, chances to work with clients in creating PR campaigns and promotional materials, and many opportunities to work in the radio station (94.3 The Fortress), TV stations (WIWU-51), and newspaper (The Sojourn and www.GrantCOnnected.net). In the classroom, I really enjoyed the teaching style of Dr. Greg Fiebig. He instilled in me the joy or learning for learning's sake, rather than to earn a certain grade. I grew in my study of communications just as much as I have grown in my faith through his classes.

Featured Alumni Review
Alyssa
HR Receptionist, Class of 2015

U What I found most unique in my programs was the availability of the staff towards the students. I was mentored by a faculty member for three years out of my three and half at IWU. His dedication helped me complete two degrees, multiple senior projects, three teaching assistant positions, juggle multiple jobs, process through what my future career objectives would be, all during the storminess that comes with being in college. In so many aspects of my life during undergrad I was covered in prayer and in support and encouragement by my professors, and still have the privilege to maintain friendships beyond receiving my degree.

Popular Questions
Who are the notable alumni?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Per IWU’s mission, all graduates who spread their character, scholarship, and leadership are notable — but there are a handful of alumni who’ve managed to get themselves a Wikipedia page. Flexing their skills in politics, Jean Breaux uses her business degree to serve as an Indiana state senator for the 34th district, and Joseph Kofi Adda puts to work his politics and economics degrees as a member of Ghana’s parliament. Brandon Beachy played baseball at IWU and later went on to pitch for the Atlanta Braves. Laurell K. Hamilton took her English degree and turned it into a prolific novelist career, even landing a spot on the New York Time’s bestsellers list for her Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series. Dan Seaborn undertook the mission to spread his passion for Christ after IWU and founded Winning at Home Inc., a ministry that focuses on family relationships.

What is the campus setting like?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

The Marion-based 345 acres with 16 academic and administrative buildings and 20 red-brick residence halls offer the 2,900 students walking the tree-lined paths more than a place to learn — it offers them community. The Barnes Student Center is a social hub with $2 movies at the Globe Movie Theater, a food court that reminds you of Mom’s home cooking, and live music and entertainment at Crema. The Williams Prayer Chapel, stretching into the sky with one steeple and shining light on Christ through a large rosary window, upholds IWU values and provides students with a place to meditate and grow their character and spirituality. The campus also touts one of the largest auditoriums in the Midwest — the Chapel-Auditorium — seating 3,800, which is plenty of room for the chapel services, commencements, convocations, concerts, and conventions.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Since 1985, IWU said “no adult left behind” and opened more than 90 education centers throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, and offers more than 60 undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs. In 1996, the university went online, with more than 80 programs that offer the same degrees students could earn on campus — with the only difference being that you could now take your classes and turn in your assignments from the comfort of your couch, if that’s how you like to learn. The online system groups students into learning communities from the beginning of their programs to the end. That way students learn with the same peers and naturally develop relationships, support systems, and trust over time — so much so that many meet at graduation and feel like they’re surrounded by long-time friends. The online program was even recognized in 2014 as one of the country’s Best Online Colleges by Best Value Schools (BVS).

What are the athletic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

The Wildcats represent IWU in red and gray as they compete against other private Christian schools in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Mid-Central College Conference. Men can compete in nine sports, spanning from basketball and baseball to cross country and football. Women can compete in 10 sports including swimming, tennis, basketball, soccer, and more. And as they compete, athletes are encouraged to “imitate Christ’s humility.” For those who aren’t interested in varsity-level athletics, intramural activities are offered throughout the year with the Luau Sand Volleyball, the Backyard Brawl flag football competition, racquetball tournaments, and more.

What are the school's academic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Character and spirituality are held up as high as knowledge at IWU. The university, as part of the Wesleyan Church and with a student population that represents more than 80 Christian denominations and 10 foreign countries, offers religious studies including biblical literature, youth ministries, and Christian worship. Among its 80 undergrad, 38 graduate, and five doctorate degrees, you can also find traditional studies such as public relations, computer science, accounting, writing, biology, and elementary education. With small class sizes and a student-faculty ratio of 15:1, students receive more personalized attention. Professors are passionate about their students’ successes and the fields they teach. Students can even take their learning to the next level with IWU special programs that focus on leadership and nature. Like Outdoor Wilderness Learning, where you experience God’s creation in Ontario, Canada, for a week. Or Adventure Learning, where you can spend weekends or holidays rock climbing, backpacking, and kayaking. You’ll find more than facts at IWU — you’ll find your calling in life.
