How to Apply

While the UIC College of Nursing does not admit first year students directly into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program, applicants seeking admission into the Nursing Program are strongly advised to apply to UIS to complete the first phase of the program. The program can be completed in four years of full-time study and involves two phases: two years of pre-nursing general education courses and two years of professional nursing courses, which will be delivered by UIC College of Nursing Faculty in Springfield. Admission to the professional phase of the BSN program is competitive.
