rush and loyola have great nursing programs. its not an adn but a bsn. at loyola, however, if you have a ba in something else, they definitely want you. you will receive a few incentives also.
go to their websites for more info. rush and loyola are expensive. thats why the instructors there are the bomb.
rush another great school, teaching hospital. organized. busy.
city colleges of chicago, i would recommend to stay away far away
from them. there are alot of students who are suing them. the instructors and chancellors do not care about you becoming a skillful, and knowledgeable nurse. why, do you? they provide my aunt and her classmates with no nursing tutors, resource center closed, mock skills labs closed and no director of nursing. but yet the students still paid 450. for lab fees. that is based on my aunt's experiences there. i guess if you have several, several students suiing you, its best to find other schools. most of the city colleges school are not nln accrediated. its affordable tuition. maybe that why... you get what you pay for. i would rather pay extra just so i can have an instructor will wants to educate me and knows how to teach.
prairie state college in the suburabs, i have heard everything good about this school. tuitions are reasonable
a new school opened up in chicago...robert morris, have not heard anything about them yet. i also heard that kaplan will be having nursing program in the near future.
do research. listen to current of past students. they will tell you the truth about the school and instructors. its okay to have a strict instructor as long as they know what they are teaching about. as long as is constructive and not destructive.
wish you luck!
