In this paper we introduce a new class of modules which is closely related to the class of Noetherian modules. Let $R$ be a commutative ring with identity and let $M$ be an $R$-module such that $Nil(M)$ is a divided prime submodule of $M$. $M$ is called a Nonnil-Noetherian $R$-module if every nonnil submodule of $M$ is finitely generated. We prove that many of the properties of Noetherian modules are also true for Nonnil-Noetherian modules.
