Blessing Rieman College of Nursing says

Blessing-Rieman has offered a quality nursing education for over 100 years.

Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing (BRCN) offers a 4-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree through two joint programs with our partners, Culver-Stockton College and Quincy University. Students take all nursing courses and clinicals at BRCN and general education courses at the partner college. Your first nursing course is in the first semester of the Sophomore year. Most of the Junior and Senior years are spent on the BRCN campus. Students who complete the program earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and are prepared to the state board of nursing examination for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).

Like most colleges, our students are both male and female; some are new high school graduates and some are older non-traditional students; some have some college credit and some are already nurses who want to get their BSN degree.
