Welcome from the President
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Bellin College which offers programs of study in nursing and medical imaging. I have been a part of the College for over 26 years and have enjoyed experiencing the advancements we have made over the years. Since 1909, the College has provided a rich and stimulating environment that engages purpose and passion in every student that enters our programs.
Over the years, Bellin College has graduated over 2,000 healthcare professionals and has grown beyond the nursing field from inception over 107 years ago, to now include various specialties in the medical imaging field.
Our faculty, staff, and administration are committed to the success of our students. We are aware of the ever changing needs in the healthcare profession and provide various experiences for our students to prepare for a healthcare career through a focused curriculum, extensive hands-on practice, leadership and service learning, and dedication to the values of excellence, integrity, community, and caring. These learning experiences enrich the students’ application of critical thinking and interprofessionalism, necessary for success in today’s ever-changing healthcare environment. Bellin College graduates make a difference in their profession, the community, and society at large. Our graduates are able to reach their goals through lifelong learning and embrace their role as leaders in healthcare.
Take a moment to browse through our history timeline to see how Bellin College has evolved over the years. I invite you to tour our website and visit our beautiful campus located in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Bellin College Partners
Bellin College is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bellin Health System. Our students benefit from a variety of scholarships; the Bellin Run, Bellin Auxi., George Bennett, Michael Wilde. Bellin Health is supportive in a majority of our recruiting programs such as: summer camp, life’s a lab, and other prospective student initiatives. Our current students benefit from the clinical aspect through out Bellin’s extensive clinics, hospitals, and community agencies. Many of our alumni hold positions through out the Bellin system.
Bellin College entered into a partnership with the N.E.W. Community Clinic and Encompass Early Education and Care in 2006. Bellin College’s faculty Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Lynn Murphy, provides pediatric nursing services and preventative care to the children enrolled at Encompass two days a week. In turn, students at Bellin College receive clinical instruction from Lynn at Encompass. Professor Murphy spends two days a week at Encompass’ Rosebush Center and the Cornerstone Center, using her nursing talents. According to the Encompass newsletter, “‘Nurse Lynn’, as she is known by the children at Encompass, is an invaluable resource for our children, families, and our staff.”
The service Lynn provides and the partnership deserves recognition for how many lives are affected by this excellent care. The partnership and service provided were named Bellin College Pediatric Health Center. Lynn will continue to provide access to care for children where there are gaps in the area’s healthcare delivery system. The pediatric nursing care will be provided free of charge, as a service to the community and will continue to be financially supported by Bellin College.
