We know you're enhancing your education to fuel your career. That matters to us, too. We're here to help.

The UIC College of Nursing considers it a priority to assist students with  job search preparation, professional development and networking. Some of the services offered are:

Mock interviews with nurse managers/recruiters

Offered: Fall and spring semesters

Students have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with nurse managers and HR recruiters from local hospitals. Last year, mock interviewers came from:

  • Advocate Health Care
  • UI Health (University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System)
  • Northwestern Medicine
  • Presence Health
  • Cook County Health and Hospitals System
  • Infant Welfare Society of Chicago

What an amazing opportunity to practice interviewing skills and work out anxieties in a safe environment! I feel more prepared as I start the job search process.
