Faculty

Nursing professors at Elmhurst know what it takes to succeed in nursing, because they have done it themselves.

Each member of our nursing faculty holds a master’s degree and/or a doctorate. With close ties to the profession, they teach the latest developments in the field.

What’s more, you can count on plenty of individual attention here—our clinical student-faculty ratio is 8:1. That means students get to know each other and their teachers in a collaborative, productive environment.
