Blessing Rieman

QUINCY — Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing and Health Sciences’ most recent student pass rate for the national examination to become a registered nurse (NCLEX-RN) is 94 percent — the second highest among 34 bachelor of science in nursing education programs in Illinois and fifth highest among 28 programs in Missouri.

In a press release, Dr. Brenda Beshears, president, chief executive officer and professor at Blessing-Rieman, said, “Blessing-Rieman bachelor of science in nursing graduates are among the best in the two-state area as evidenced by their exceptional performance on their national licensure examination. In addition, they have qualities that are not measured by a test, such as compassion, critical thinking and resilience.”

Beshears added the college follows a curriculum focused on a strong base of nursing knowledge as well as test-taking skills.

“Blessing-Rieman faculty work with graduating seniors one-on-one to develop and implement a study plan to prepare for the NCLEX-RN exam,” said Dr. Brandi Venvertloh, professor and chairman of the Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing and Health Sciences RN-to-BSN Committee. “The faculty also offers test preparation review sessions for the students prior to taking the exam.”

Blessing-Rieman’s 94 percent pass rate is for NCLEX tests taken during 2022. The NCLEX pass rate for 2023 won’t be released until 2024.
