Chamberlain College of Nursing is opening a new campus in Tinley Park, Ill., and is now accepting applications for admission to the summer semester, which begins May 6, 2013. This new campus opening reinforces Chamberlain’s commitment to increasing access to nursing education and addresses the growing demand for nurses in Illinois. The Tinley Park campus is Chamberlain’s third campus in Illinois. Chamberlain’s Addison, Ill. campus opened in 2008, and the Chicago campus opened in 2010.
“Chamberlain College of Nursing, renowned for their excellence, has been graduating nurses for more than 122 years,” said State Sen. Maggie Crotty. “The new campus in Tinley Park will provide students with a local opportunity to receive a comprehensive nursing degree, helping to fill the ongoing demand for highly skilled registered nurses.”
Demand for nurses is expected to surge as the number of Americans over the age of 65 grows, baby boomers retire, and legislative reform extends healthcare coverage to millions of new patients. The Illinois Center for Nursing projects a state shortage of more than 21,000 registered nurses by 2020 1 and warns that expanding educational capacity is vital to ensuring the supply of a qualified and highly skilled workforce. Yet a 2011 survey from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing reports that 2,973 qualified Illinois students were turned away from baccalaureate and graduate programs in nursing in 2010 due to insufficient number of faculty and classroom space, among other factors 2.
“Without access to bachelor’s degree programs that many employers of nurses now require, students do not have the opportunity to realize their professional goals and help alleviate the state’s nursing shortage,” said Susan Groenwald, PhD, MSN, national president of Chamberlain College of Nursing. “The new Chamberlain campus makes this career path possible for many prospective students in the Tinley Park region.”
