University of Chicago Medicine's long tradition of innovation means nurses are exposed to leading-edge technology and research every day. Our nurses regularly take part in the implementation of advanced patient care protocols, often launching protocols that later become the standard for care elsewhere. In addition, our nurses work with patients from all walks of life and handle cases at every level of complexity. Such advantages go unmatched in the greater Chicago area.

Magnet Recognition

UChicago Medicine received the prestigious Magnet Recognition Program designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for excellence in nursing and patient care.

The distinction, granted in April 2018 after a lengthy and rigorous review process, recognizes health care organizations that have the highest standards for nursing excellence and professional performance in a variety of areas, including evidence-based practice and research, education, ethics, leadership and collaboration.
