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, health sciences, and human services college, but a great college in general. We hope you will agree. 

As a small college specializing in health and human service professions, you will find excellent, dedicated and professional instructors; 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, fulfill your educational dreams, and find gainful employment in your chosen profession. Our affiliation with UnityPoint Health offers many outstanding job opportunities in the greater Peoria region for our graduates!
