Illinois Nursing Schools

Illinois Nursing Schools

Our experts bring together nursing students and Illinois nursing schools. We suggest that you find a fully accredited nursing school because it will be one factor to a successful nursing career.

By attending a fully accredited nursings school by the CCNE or NLNAC, you are you eligible for financial aid and scholarship, and your course credits are more easily accepted when transferring between nursing schools. Not to mention that graduating with an accredited nursing degree is respected more by employers.

Our list of nursing schools in Illinois are accredited by at least one of the two major US nursing commissions:

  1. Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)
  2. National League for Nursing Accreditation Commission (NLNAC or NLN)

You can also find listings of online nursing schools, many of them are out of state, but they gladly accept nursing students from Illinois.
