We are very pleased to be able to bring to the Chicago area a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program with a long history and rich tradition. The Addison campus represents the third Chamberlain College of Nursing campus to open outside of the St. Louis area where Chamberlain began in 1889 and still exists today.
Our mission is clear – we are committed to providing the educational background and tools that will culminate in a graduate who will be an excellent nurse. Our experienced faculty and staff are dedicated to bringing their expertise, their unique ability to teach, and their passion for professional nursing to our students. Our proudest moment is when healthcare organizations in the Chicagoland area hire our graduates and tell us that Chamberlain students exemplify the high standards that they expect in their nurses.
We believe our single purpose mission, coupled with small classes, high-tech laboratories and an open, positive environment for learning makes Chamberlain College of Nursing the ideal setting for an individual who wants to pursue a nursing degree.
I invite those of you who are interested in pursuing a rewarding and exciting career as a professional nurse to contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

At Chamberlain College of Nursing, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of our students – and in the world. That’s why Chamberlain’s focus on student success extends well beyond the classroom and clinical environments, providing nursing students with opportunities to expand their educational horizons through a full spectrum of social, cause-related, and field experiences both locally and globally.
Chamberlain students have ventured far beyond the classroom and local communities to participate in International Nursing Service Projects in Kenya, Bolivia, and Brazil. This first-hand immersion experience allows students to gain a deeper understanding of cultural and economic differences. The two- to three-week International Nursing Service Projects can be done in place of the school’s required multiculturalism and community health courses.
