Resurrection University says

Resurrection University was founded as West Suburban School of Nursing in 1914, a diploma program, and has enjoyed a rich history of preparing students for professional healthcare careers for almost a century.

A diploma program was offered from 1948 to 1982 with Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. In 1982, a formal agreement was established with Concordia University, River Forest, to offer the general education portion of the curriculum for a baccalaureate program. This affiliation officially ended in 2004.

Today, Resurrection University is a fully-accredited, not-for-profit, Catholic-based specialty school for health sciences. The University is owned and operated by Resurrection Health Care, a not-for-profit Catholic organization sponsored by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth and the Sisters of the Resurrection.
