Nursing

Did you know that by 2020, the United States will face an estimated shortage of 800,000 nurses?*  What an exciting time to become a nurse!

Oakton’s rigorous nursing curriculum prepares students for a variety of health care settings – and graduates enjoy a 98 percent pass rate on the licensure exam.

Courses include a combination of classroom and clinical experiences. Classes typically meet at the Des Plaines campus, and students enrich their learning through the clinical experience offered in a variety of health care settings throughout the community.

Because nursing is a limited admission program, applications are accepted by appointment only.

For more information, contact Julie Rosenberg, health career advisor, at 847.635.1266 or jmrosenb@oakton.edu.
