Chancellor's Welcome

Welcome to the Methodist College website! Our college strives for excellence in all areas of operation. We look at our school as not just a great nursing and health sciences college, but a great college in general. We hope you will agree. 

As a small college specializing in health professions, you will find excellent, dedicated and professional faculty; small class sizes; accessible faculty and administrators who strive to know you by name and have a caring and mentoring relationship with each student; and beautiful state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratory facilities. 

Our goal is to provide you with the best academic courses and support services to ensure your success fulfilling your educational dreams and finding gainful employment in your chosen profession. Our affiliation with UnityPoint Health offers many job opportunities in the greater Peoria region for our graduates!
