Work with the profession's top scholars and educators, supporting a student body of nurse leaders that is second to none.
The College of Nursing at the University of Illinois at Chicago is one of the premier nursing schools in the nation, with graduate programs ranked in the top 20 by U.S. News & World Report and a research enterprise ranked in the top 10 for NIH funding. Our mission is to transform health, healthcare and policy through knowledge generation and translation, and also through education of future nurse leaders from diverse backgrounds. Nearly 1,500 students are enrolled in bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs at our six Illinois campuses: Chicago, Peoria, Rockford, Quad Cities, Springfield and Urbana. We count among our outstanding faculty: four members of the Sigma Theta Tau Intl. Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame; 27 fellows of the American Academy of Nursing (AAN); and six former deans and professors named “Living Legends” of the AAN.
