I am having a great experience at Iowa Wesleyan. The town has that small town feel and everyone is friendly. The pass rate of the NCLEX-RN exam is what brought me to IWU, it is awesome!

Iowa Wesleyan College has a wide range of majors to study. The courses are major-focused and taught in a way that is fun. Classes are offered online, on campus, or at West Burlington.
