Applying to Illinois Nursing Programs

In the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, we hope that our students are accepted to the UIC College of Nursing to pursue their nursing studies. However, the number of students who are interested in becoming a nurse always exceeds the number of seats available in each class. The application process to UIC and many other nursing programs is highly competitive. Because of this, LAS Pre-Health Advisors encourage students to explore an array of different nursing programs. In fact, being aware of your options can make students better applicants - learning about different nursing programs allows you to find the best fit program for you. Transferring to another institution can be confusing, so students are encouraged to speak with a Pre-Health Advisor as well as admission representatives of the schools to which they plan to apply. There are a number of different ways to pursue nursing studies. The State of Illinois compiles a list of the various Illinois nursing programs and degrees offered. While many are located in the Chicagoland area, good nursing programs exist throughout the state.
