Which of these programs do you feel is stronger? I plan on doing UIC's DNP program after I am an RN for a bit so I feel I should go for the best program I can. I mean I could do UIC's nursing program, but I'd have to wait over a year to do so.
I also attended St. Francis and feel it was a great school. One of its advantages is that all of your inpatient clinicals (except psych) are at OSF, which I considered important as it is a level one trauma center and has a large children's hospital and NICU. I also loved the intructors and staff. On the other hand, I currently work with a few Methodist graduates, who are also very well educated.
