Nursing Program

Knox offers a cooperative program with Rush University College of Nursing. You'll receive a bachelor's degree from Knox and a master's degree from Rush, which is the equivalent of Clinical Nursing Leader (CNL) training found at other institutions. Upon completion of your bachelor's degree, you'll have a guaranteed slot in the Graduate Entry Master's program at Rush.

Occupational Therapy Program

Our affiliation agreement with Washington University in St. Louis, whose occupational therapy program is among the top-ranked in the nation, means that you'll receive preference in their admission process. The 3-2 program includes three years at Knox and two years at Washington University, earning both a bachelor's degree and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) degree. 

Optometry Program

The Knox-Illinois College of Optometry (ICO) combined degree program allows you to work toward your Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) degree at ICO after three years at Knox. Your first year in the optometry program will count as your final year at Knox. Applicants are selected by ICO in their third year after successfully completing curriculum requirements.
