Lakeview College of Nursing is a private, not-for-profit learning institution with an open admission policy and a small student-to-faculty ratio. The history of the school starts with the founding of the Lakeview Hospital and the Danville Training School for Nurses in 1894. The nursing programs and the hospital were closely connected until the Lakeview Medical Center was sold in 1988. The nursing program was not included in this sale and became Lakeview College of Nursing. The college remains small with an annual enrollment of just 289 students and 19 academic staff. Along with the main campus in Danville, the college maintains a second campus in Charleston, Illinois.

Lakeview College of Nursing does not offer any graduate-level nursing programs. Their programs are designed for those wanting to earn their BSN degrees. These programs include the traditional BSN along with accelerated BSN, RN to BSN, and LPN to BSN programs, which are all accredited by the CCNE. Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses with associate degrees may qualify to enroll in the RN to BSN or LPN to BSN programs. The traditional BSN program also includes an accelerated track for students who want to complete the program in four semesters. However, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 to remain enrolled in the program.
