Give to UIC Nursing

In times of crisis and calm, nurses lead us through

During the original COVID-19 crisis, subsequent waves, future pandemics and other healthcare challenges, high-quality, well prepared nurses will lead us through.

Nurses have proven their leadership and courage on the pandemic battleground in recent years, but that wasn't the first time or the last time they have been at the forefront of the fight for our health and well-being.

One of the keys to overcoming any healthcare crisis is to prepare legions of nurses with a top-notch UIC College of Nursing education. We educate our students to become the very best healthcare providers.

In 2023 rankings, our DNP, MS, BSN and RN-BSN programs all rank in the top 20 nationally. Our MS and DNP are No. 1 and No 2 in Illinois, respectively. Our BSN program is the only undergraduate nursing program in the state to make the top 30. As for research funding, UIC Nursing ranks #9 nationally in terms of NIH awards to nursing schools.

Your philanthropy is urgently needed to help our students and faculty succeed. Make your gift to one of our priority funds now.

“We’re about 15 retired nurses who got together and gave money in Joann’s name because we all loved her. You can see how, maybe as individuals we couldn’t do very much, but combined we’ve done something. It just goes to show that everyone can make a difference.”

Karen Dalal, BSN '75
