Accelerated Nursing Program Curriculum
Our accelerated nursing program curriculum follows a rigorous, effective sequence of online and on-site coursework. While an intense learning format, you can expect to receive highly personalized attention from your faculty, clinical instructors, and the support of a close-knit cohort.
- Online coursework teaches key nursing theory concepts.
- Skills labs provide hands-on learning experiences with faculty.
- Clinical rotations offer diverse patient care experiences through St. Vincent
This blended learning format provides the knowledge and skills that are necessary to sit for the NCLEX-RN, a licensure exam that every nursing school graduate must pass to be able to practice the profession.
I chose the ABSN program at Marian University because I wanted to continue my education in a small, close-knit environment that could help me be a better nurse.
