Pre-Nursing/Nursing

The demand for baccalaureate-prepared nurses has never been greater.


We are the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing, Springfield Regional Campus.

The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing is consistently ranked in the top quartile for nursing schools nationally and is ranked #8 in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The UIC College of Nursing is accredited through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

UIC Nursing has partnered with the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) and Memorial Health Systems to offer students an opportunity to earn a UIC Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree on the Springfield campus.

The addition of the Springfield regional campus further expands the presence of the UIC College of Nursing statewide. “The Springfield partnership – between a national and internally respected nursing college, a health system with two Magnet-designated hospitals, and a university whose Capital Scholars honors program is recognized for generating incredible leaders – will produce academically strong, critically thinking nurses, practitioners and midwives that will meet the health care needs of the people of throughout Illinois,” says Dean Terri E. Weaver.
