Blessing-Rieman expands direct transfer degree option

Blessing Rieman

QUINCY — People with completed college credits can earn a four-year healthcare degree from Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing and Health Sciences in Quincy in as little as two years.

The college has expanded its direct transfer option for a bachelor of science degree to include radiologic sciences and respiratory care, as well as its nursing program — where the option has been in place for a number of years.

The direct transfer option allows people with completed pre-requisite and general education courses from another educational institution to enter directly in to Blessing-Rieman College and complete their degree in 2-3 years. Students begin nursing or health sciences classes right away in their first year with Blessing-Rieman. They also will receive hands-on clinical experience and participate in simulations at the Blessing-Rieman College Simulation Center.

In a press release, Brenda Beshears, president and CEO, said “This is an excellent opportunity to complete your degree without being on a waitlist. This option offers a seamless entry.”

Radiologic sciences and respiratory care classes begin in August. The nursing program offers start dates in August and January.
