School of Nursing
Welcome to the Saint Xavier University School of Nursing, the first nursing mercy school in Illinois! Whether students are recent high school graduates, registered nurses or licensed practical nurses, SON has the right bachelor program for all! With the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) available in traditional or accelerated formats, students are able to achieve their degree at their own pace and experience level. The School of Nursing also provides excellent options for graduate students seeking a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree or post-master's certificates. SON programs include:
- Bachelor of Science in Nursing
- Master of Science in Nursing
- Dual Master of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Business Administration
- Post-Master's Options
The School of Nursing constructs that learning environment by supplying students with experienced advisors. All nursing students are provided with advisors who are ready to assist them throughout the nursing program. In addition, they receive guidance from a National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) coach who will help them prepare for their licensing test.
SON also instills excellence and understanding through hands-on usage of on-campus laboratories. The health assessment lab mimics a doctor’s office for students to make full health assessments and physicals. The simulation labs allow students to examine patients throughout a typical lifespan, including a state-of-the-art birthing center. Additionally, SON has medical examination rooms where students are able to practice what they learn in the classroom.
