The student body of the UIC College of Nursing is an energetic, inquisitive, productive community.

Students have classes and clinicals at every nursing school, but at UIC we have more than a few resources, programs and opportunities that enhance the value of your time here. And of course, the people you'll meet through your program are the greatest value-add of all.

There's so much we could say about student life at UIC Nursing, but why not let our students speak for themselves?
