About Resurrection University

History/Heritage

Resurrection University was founded as West Suburban School of Nursing in 1914 as a diploma program. Today, Resurrection University is a fully-accredited, not-for-profit, Catholic-based specialty school for health sciences with a College of Nursing and a College of Allied Health. The institution offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees. 

Owned and operated by Presence Health, the largest Catholic health care system in Illinois, Resurrection University offers a real world educational experience both inside and outside the classroom.  Faculty members mentor our students and take an active interest in their success.  And our affiliation with Presence Health and its hospitals not only allows us to supply valuable clinical experiences, but to offer career placement opportunities within the system as well.

Resurrection has recently completed its planned relocation to new, state-of-the-art facilities at Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.
