The City of Chicago colleges ie Truman
is to name a fewto get u started
- Jan 8, '08 by Anders.CDo you know if the City College of Chicago have good nursing programs? I'm clueless as far as school reputations in Chicago! Thank you!
- Jan 8, '08 by livingthedreamI cannot comment on their nursing school through the CCC (chicago city colleges) but I can say that when I went there for pre-reqs it was horrible. I went to Harold Washington (no nursing program, but all pre-reqs) and they treat you like you are 9 years old. You have to wait hours in line to see someone just so you can register for the class that you know you need. WHY do I have to see an "advisor" for one class, and they make everything very complex when it really is not. It was a horrible eye opener for me after coming from an undergrad experience that was very easy and treated college students as adults.
- Jan 8, '08 by JilaweezAre you looking in the City or Burbs?
- Jan 10, '08 by Anders.CPreferably, city.
- Jan 10, '08 by michelle9655I heard the UIC has the best nursing program around chicago. i, however, go to harper college which is pretty much a big community college in the suburbs. i like it so far but i am only a freshman.
- Jan 11, '08 by livingthedreamIf you are a transfer, I would see which school will:
A: accept you - many schools are very hard to get into and have waiting lists
B: will transfer the majority if not all of your current credits

City Colleges of Chicago is substandard. I know they are being sued by several, several students from their various city colleges. I have not heard one good thing about their programs. My aunt went there, she is still traumatize by what they have done to her and her classmates. I think they have a differnet agenda other than teaching nurses to become nurses. If any, I think Daley I heard was okay.
If you can't go out in suburbs. Go to St. Xavier its a four year program and their faculties are all about teaching their students. Unlike the college mentioned above.
Triton is a two year, I heard good things about them.
Good Luck! Do some more research - thats very important.Last edit by 4rom2bRN on Jan 11, '08
