Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences

Rock Island, IL 61201

Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences is a private institution in Rock Island, Illinois. The history of the college goes back over 100 years when three separate hospitals established their own schools for training nurses. Over the years, the three hospitals and their schools merged, eventually becoming Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences. The college began offering graduate-level degrees in 1998 after receiving accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission. The campus is in Rock Island on a 4.5-acre site and consists of one large building. Along with the classrooms, this building houses the Harriet Olson Learning Lab, which is an NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center.

Trinity College gives students several options for earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, including a traditional BSN program. They also offer accelerated BSN and RN to BSN programs. The accelerated BSN program is a 15-month program for students who already have a bachelor’s degree in a separate field. For those who are not ready for a four-year degree, the college also has an Associate Degree in Nursing program, which is accredited by the ACEN. Students can develop their hands-on skills through training at the Harriet Olson Learning Lab or through the college’s partnerships with local healthcare facilities, including UnityPoint Health.
