Presentation College Partnership Pathways

Presentation Logo

While the recent announcement by our colleagues at Presentation College to cease operations in after Spring and Summer 2023 comes as unwelcome news to all, we recognize an urgent need to support the students and alumni of Presentation College and the legacy of the college.  

St. Ambrose University has been designated as a teach-out university for Presentation College students.  We have taken specific steps to provide you and members of the Presentation College community with assistance.

Finishing Your Nursing Degree Online

St. Ambrose University, Presentation College, and the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary are announcing the founding of the Nano Nagle School for Online Nursing at St. Ambrose University in honor of the legacy of the Venerable Honora Nano Nagle and the ongoing work of the Presentation Sisters as Presentation College moves to cease operations.  The school builds on the recently announced partnership between St. Ambrose University and Presentation College to offer flexible online LPN-BSN and RN-BSN programs that are designed to reach healthcare professionals who wish to advance their careers in nursing without leaving the workforce. 

Students currently enrolled in the Presentation College online nursing program are invited to learn more about how St. Ambrose University is working with Presentation College and the Presentation Sisters to support your degree completion by contacting
