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 eligible to take the state board of nursing examination for licensure as a Registered Nurse (RN).
