The Legacy Continues through the Nano Nagle Online School of Nursing

In January 2023 the decision was made to close the doors of Presentation College. As we transition into its final days October 31, we take a moment to remember. We remember forever in our hearts the founding sisters, the staff and the students.

The Presentation Sisters founded Presentation College in 1951 to fulfill its mission of rural health care and service through nursing education. The College later expanded to include academic programs in health and natural sciences, and social science and humanities, to support its mission of development of the whole person, in the Catholic tradition.

For over 70 years, thousands of students graced the hallways, classrooms and dorm rooms. Friendships formed between students and faculty as they shared their accomplishments, their disappointments, their lives. We stand in profound gratitude for the countless ways Presentation College prepared these students to go forth living the Gospel message as servant leaders and for those who empowered them.

With the guiding light of Nano’s lantern, a partnership between Presentation College and St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, formed the Nano Nagle Online School of Nursing. Taking into consideration that many who desire an education are unable to relocate to a campus setting, this flexible program is designed to reach rural healthcare professionals who wish to advance their careers in nursing without leaving the workforce.
