Quick Facts

Methodist College's history began in 1900 with the Deaconesses of the Methodist Episcopal Church who established a hospital and nurse training school in Peoria, Illinois. Re-envisioned as a college,  Methodist College of Nursing was established in 2000, and was later renamed Methodist College. It  is a private institution located in Peoria, Illinois, focused on nursing, health science, and human services education.
