We are proud that the distance ABSN is the first of its kind in Illinois, and the distance MENP is the first of its kind in the nation. As a student here, you will become part of the rich history of Elmhurst University, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

Our distance ABSN and MENP programs provide rigorous professional preparation and robust clinical skills development. The University’s Department of Nursing and Health Sciences is dedicated to increasing diversity in nursing and prides itself on providing educational opportunities for students of all backgrounds.
