Admissions: Programs of Study


Completion of the nursing program is accomplished by completing, at Marywood, the five senior-level nursing courses and the requirements of the University. Before taking upper division courses, you'll need to successfully complete foundation courses in biology, chemistry, nutrition, psychology, sociology, philosophy, speech, and writing; you'll also take a course in statistics. These courses will help you fulfill the liberal arts requirements of the University. Knowledgeable and involved teachers will work closely with you to be sure you take advantage of leading-edge scientific facilities at Marywood, opportunities in the local region for hands-on clinical experience, and nursing research from around the globe. You'll leave Marywood prepared to practice in a variety of health care settings, including: critical care, community health, public health, primary care, acute care, and mental health care.
