Healthcare is now the region's largest employment sector. There has never been a better time to invest in your nursing career in Peoria, and there's no better place to do it than UIC.
The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council reports healthcare is the largest employment sector in the region, with 32,201 people employed at 717 healthcare organizations—36% above the national average. So why choose UIC Nursing for your next credential? Not only are our graduate programs ranked among the best in the nation, and not only have we built strong partnerships with community and healthcare agencies since we were founded in 1972, but now our Peoria Campus is completely virtual while still offering vital interprofessional collaboration in teaching, education and research with the UIC College of Medicine, which also has a campus in Peoria.

Testimonial from Peoria student Heading link
The smaller class sizes in Peoria created an environment that facilitated group learning. My peers and I were bonded as we followed different pathways to achieve a common goal. We frequently met for study groups and worked together to become leaders in our field.DNP '18, Peoria Campus|
