COVID-19 Updates

We are preparing for a safe, flexible return to campus this fall.

Faculty and Staff

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.
