Quincy, IL 62305

The Blessing Rieman College of Nursing and Health Sciences is a small private college in Quincy, Illinois. However, they have a long tradition. The college was founded in 1891 and has always been dedicated to nursing and health sciences. In fact, they became one of the first nursing schools to earn accreditation in 1909. All faculty members have either an MSN or Ph.D. in nursing or a related field. The college partners with two nearby liberal arts colleges for required classes that are outside of the nursing field. Clinical experience is provided through a partnership with the Blessing Hospital, which has a large campus and serves the Quincy community.

The Blessing Rieman College of Nursing and Health Sciences offers five different nursing programs. These programs include traditional BSN and MSN programs along with several additional paths for earning a BSN. Depending on the prerequisites, students may enroll in the RN to BSN, LPN to BSN, or accelerated BSN programs. These programs are accredited by the ACEN and CCNE. The RN to BSN program is offered online while most of the other programs require traditional classroom learning. Besides the standard nursing programs, the college also offers an Associate of Science in Respiratory Care and an Associate of Science in Health Information Management.
