Portrait of female student

“I chose UIC for nursing school because it is ranked the #1 BSN program in Illinois. I also loved the idea that it is right in the middle of the Chicago’s medical district. All the professors are supportive and will prepare you to be the best nurse you can be.”

“I have learned more than just nursing at UIC, but I have also learned life skills and responsibilities. I was able to get my dream position of working on a cardiac ICU right out of school and feel so blessed to know my knowledge and skills came from such a reputable institution.”
