    Hey, I am an RN at the University of Chicago. We have many employees who join us for our tuition reimbursement for CNA, RN, and MSN programs. I am currently enrolled an MSN program and will graduate loan-free, but I know many secretaries, transport employees, etc. who work for UofC just to get their free license.

    This is the program that I'm currently in. These instructors are awesome.

    The program consists of 94 hours of theory and 49 hours of clinical instruction. Satisfactory completion of the program leads to eligibility to take the state competency written evaluation for certification. A graduate of the program will be awarded a certificate of completion.
    The 8 week program is currently being offered at Saint Mary of the Nazareth Hospital Center in downtown Chicago and Holy Family Medical Center in Des Plaines.
    For information on our program at Saint Mary of the Nazareth Hospital Center please contact Connie Drogos at 312-770-2357 or Christine Waller at 312-770-2358.
