Clinical Partnership with St. Vincent
While our accredited curriculum and expert faculty teach you how to apply safe, competent, and ethical care, our clinical partnership with St. Vincent gives you a deeper understanding of the nursing profession by allowing you to learn from top health care team members in treating patients in a variety of specialized areas.
Like Marian University, St. Vincent is a nonprofit, Catholic-based entity that applies spiritually centered, holistic care to improve the health of the individual and the community. As such, St. Vincent treats the mind, body, and spirit of those in need—no matter their personal means or religious affiliations.
A member of Ascension Health, the largest Catholic health care system in the country, St. Vincent operates 18 hospitals, a major medical complex, and numerous joint ventures in Indiana. It is also one of the largest employers in Indiana, with more than 3,000 physicians and 16,000 associates.
Experience the Spirit of Caring
Our partnership with St. Vincent is one of several reasons students choose our online-based Accelerated BSN program in Indianapolis. As an ABSN student, you can expect to gain unprecedented patient care experiences while working with some of the best teams in the health care industry.
The St. Vincent partnership is a big benefit for students because we learn the procedures, protocols and charting systems at St. Vincent—and the hospital knows this and is more likely to hire us.
