About RESU

Resurrection University (formerly West Suburban College of Nursing) is located in the heart of Chicago's historic Wicker Park neighborhood, within walking distance to the popular restaurants, shops and public transportation.

The University has a College of Nursing and a College Allied Health. Within the College of Nursing, the University offers a bachelor's degree in nursing (BSN), a BSN or MSN for RN program (bachelor's degree or master's degree for registered nurses), a master's degree in nursing (MSN), and a doctorate degree in nursing (DNP). In the College of Allied Health, the University offers bachelor's degrees in health informatics and information management (BSHIIM) and Imaging Technology (BSIT).

At Resurrection University, programs are flexible and many allow you the option to attend daytime classes or evening/weekend if you prefer to work while in school. The bachelor's degree programs can be completed in approximately two years when you transfer in your existing college credits. (Students must obtain their general education credits at an outside community college or university.)

Located in Presence Saint Elizabeth's Hospital, the modern University campus is LEED certified (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) and includes a new, state-of-the-art, 6,200-square-foot, Inter-Professional Simulation Learning Center. The University offers a wide variety of resources for students including the Library, the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) and faculty who are experienced, accessible, and supportive of every student. Student organizations include the Student Government Organization (SGO), the Resurrection University Student Nurses Association (RUSNA) and the Resurrection University United Nations Association (ResU-UNA), one of only three university chapters in the state of Illinois.
