Knox-Rush Cooperative Program

Knox offers a cooperative program with Rush University College of Nursing. Through this program, you can receive a bachelor's degree from Knox and a master's degree (GEM) from Rush, which is the equivalent of Clinical Nursing Leader (CNL) training found at other institutions.

To take advantage of this program, you must complete the required preparatory biology and chemistry courses for nursing study while at Knox in addition to gaining a broad background in the humanities, arts, and social sciences.

Upon completion of your bachelor's degree -- with cumulative and science GPAs of 3.0 or higher, a recommendation from the Dean of the College, and a successful interview with Rush's College of Nursing -- you will have a guaranteed seat in the Graduate Entry Master's program at Rush, which culminates in a master's degree following seven quarters of study. GRE scores are required if cumulative GPA is less than 3.25. Program participants must matriculate to Rush within nine months of graduating from Knox. Program alumni will typically sit for both RN and CNL certification upon the completion of training.
