Nursing is one of today’s fastest-growing careers, with projected job growth of more than 25% over the next 10 years.

MacNeil School of Nursing will prepare you to take charge of your career and make a remarkable impact on the world.

The Dominican Nursing Difference

The Elizabeth T. MacNeil School of Nursing’s BSN program prepares the professional nurse generalist to be sensitive to culturally diverse understandings of illness, health and wellness. What’s more, our focus on interprofessional education prepares you to collaborate closely with physicians, social workers and other members of the health care team. Launch your nursing career—in settings ranging from community-based hospitals to research institutions—or continue your education in nursing. The choices are endless.

We also offer a direct entry admission opportunity for traditional, four-year undergraduate students leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, allowing qualified students to secure a place in the nursing program beginning the fall semester of their junior year.

Dominican University Graduate

“The nursing program at Dominican University did an exceptional job in teaching me critical thinking skills and connecting the classroom to a real-life setting. Once I graduated, my level of knowledge was above most of my peers from other schools. The hospital preceptors I worked with felt the same.”
