About Program

The City Colleges of Chicago School of Nursing (CCCSON) program is concerned with the individual patient in the context of family and society. We focus our efforts on the promotion, conservation, and restoration of the individual’s patterns of health and health-seeking behavior. Nursing seeks to facilitate achievement of an optimum level of physical, social, psychological, and spiritual health. Patient-nurse relationships are based upon mutual trust and respect and the nurse’s professional competence. A high level of accountability is required when the nurse assumes patient care responsibilities. To prepare nursing students for the role of the professional registered nurse; CCCSON combines nursing theory and practice with general education. Students are provided clinical experiences and caring for individuals for all ages, through skills lab, simulation, and clinical settings throughout Chicago and surrounding suburbs.                      

Our nursing education program meets the standards of the American Nurses Association and Illinois Board of Nursing.
