Give to UIC Nursing

In times of crisis, 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 #7 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.

At UIC Nursing, our faculty and students are on the front lines of a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. We’re innovators, scientists and forward-thinkers. Our breakthrough discoveries and dedicated practice have changed lives in every corner of the world. Our drive is palpable, but there’s more to be done.

The University of Illinois Chicago is wrapping up IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC. Within that effort, the College of Nursing’s $33 million goal is focused on three priorities: support for student  scholarships, support for faculty, and support for world-class facilities. All three point to our central value: creating an environment where nurses, nurse practitioners and nurse scholars can achieve at the highest level to serve the profession we all love.

By giving to our college during IGNITE, donors provide faculty and students with the resources to challenge the status quo and improve the health and wellness of populations in our neighborhoods and around the world.
