Campus image of Resurrection University

Founded as West Suburban School of Nursing almost 100 years ago, Resurrection University is now a fully-accredited, not-for-profit, Catholic-based specialty school for health sciences.  The University is owned and operated by Resurrection Heath Care, a not-for-profit Catholic organization sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth and the Sisters of the Resurrection.  Resurrection Health Care is comprised of hospitals, nursing homes, retirement communities, home health services, behavioral health programs and other health-related services that provide advanced medical care and exceptional customer service with compassion and hope.

From its founding in 1914, Resurrection University had been affiliated with West Suburban Medical Center.  Although West Suburban was transferred to Vanguard Health on August 1, 2010, Resurrection University remains part of the Resurrection Health Care System.  Resurrection Health Care chose to hold on to the nursing school to maintain a steady supply of nurses to the System's hospitals.  This continued affiliation will give students the opportunity to choose between several convenient clinical sites for practicums, internships and employment.
