College of Nursing
and Health Sciences

Patient Centered. Career Focused.

An unwavering commitment to compassionate care, with deep respect for the dignity of each patient, will distinguish your Lewis education.

Lewis faculty will work with you to develop a compassionate, holistic approach to patient care - it is about addressing physical symptoms while caring for the heart, mind and soul. You will become an expert practitioner and innovative leader who will transform practice in an increasingly complex healthcare system.










You will work one-on-one with faculty who have real world experience in our state-of-the art simulation labs that provide you with a safe, supportive environment to practice problem- solving and develop clinical judgment based on patient symptoms. A $1.3 million renovation on the main campus includes new facility spaces that were designed for students to collaborate and share ideas. Our Oak Brook location offers seven new patient exam rooms for nurses who are advancing their knowledge to become nurse practitioners.

Your exposure to various clinical sites provides you with experience working with diverse patient populations. We believe that each person is unique and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

Our College has been developing nurses at all levels for more than 40 years. Our curriculum is continually being modified to meet the demands of the healthcare system. We currently have the largest bachelor’s program in Illinois among private, not-for-profit universities, and teach our accelerated RN/BSN and master's programs at various healthcare organizations. Many of our master’s programs and DNP are offered online for the convenience of working adults.
