Education—Teaching Licensure
The teaching licensure programs and endorsement coursework offered by Illinois College are designed to prepare a student for licensure/endorsement meeting the requirements established by the Illinois State Board of Education. The state licensing board has the ultimate authority and discretion to determine if licensure will be issued.  Licensure/certification requirements may vary among jurisdictions. For students from other state or intending to teach in other states, it is important for students to know the specific requirements of the state in which they intend to apply for licensure/certificate. Students considering a teaching program at Illinois College are highly encouraged to seek guidance from the appropriate licensing/certificate board/agency prior to enrolling in an academic program.

Nursing
Illinois College’s nursing program has three tracks: 1) traditional or pre-licensure track, 2) RN to BSN track, and 3) BSN to MSN track. Nursing licensure applies primarily to the traditional or pre-licensure track.  The RN to BSN and the BSN to MSN tracks do not lead to additional licensure. The state licensing board (Illinois Department of Professional and Financial Regulation’s Committee on Nursing) has the ultimate authority and discretion to determine if licensure (in Illinois) will be issued. 

Illinois College’s BSN program is an approved program by the Illinois Department of Professional and Financial Regulation’s Committee on Nursing. The RN to BSN and BSN to MSN tracks are not under the purview of IDFPR as they do not lead to additional licensure. 

Illinois College’s Nursing program is accredited by the Collegiate Commission on Nursing Education (CCNE).  

Licensure requirements may vary among the states.  For students from states other than Illinois intending to seek licensure in other state(s), or practice nursing in other state(s), it is important for students to know the specific requirements of the state in which they intend to apply for licensure.  Students are highly encouraged to seek guidance from their nursing faculty advisor and from the appropriate licensing board/agency prior to enrolling in the nursing major.
