Your freshman year at Marquette is all about getting into the swing of things. With plenty of newness happening outside the classroom, we intentionally structure your freshman year curriculum around general science courses, liberal arts classes and lecture-based nursing courses. You will take two nursing courses during your first two semesters on campus — Nursing and Health in the Jesuit Tradition and Dimensions of the Nursing Profession in the Jesuit Tradition. Both courses are designed not only to help you learn about health care and nursing but also to develop lifelong friendships with your classmates. As the class names imply, Jesuit ideals are threaded throughout both, just as they are through Marquette's entire University Core of Common Studies. From day one, we want you to realize that your education is based on Jesuit principles — things like caring for the whole person and being men and women for others. Beyond the classroom, your freshman year is a good time to become active in the dozens of student groups on campus. The Marquette University Student Nurses Association is always looking for enthusiastic future nurses who want to make a difference in the community — even before they’ve earned their degrees. You can learn more about MUSNA at marquette.edu/student-organizations.

"Life as a Marquette nurse isn’t solely about nursing. Nursing is a part of who you are, but it alone does not define you. I am proud to be a part of many different organizations on campus. Gospel Choir, La Causa Crisis Nursery, Students for an Environmentally Active Campus, Christian Fellowship, intramural basketball, Students for Life and even my friend network are all part of who I am."
