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.
The mission of Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing is to educate persons of diverse backgrounds to acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values needed for professional nursing practice and lifelong learning. This mission is accomplished in a community of learning dedicated to excellence and caring in professional nursing education.
The college has a long and rich history. Students were first accepted into the school in 1891. A class of three nurses graduated in 1894. Blessing Training School for Nurses was a two year training program. It became a 3-year diploma program in 1904. Blessing graduates were then able to put RN behind their name. Blessing-Rieman formally converted to a four-year BSN degree in 1985. An MSN degree was added in 2007.
