The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) at Marymount
Marymount connects students with health care agencies and clinical sites throughout the Washington, DC, area, providing hands-on skills and preparing them immediately for the rigors and rewards of this growing profession.
Marymount offers three ways to secure a B.S.N.:
- a traditional four-year B.S.N. program
- an accelerated B.S.N. program available for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree in another field, ideal for adult career switchers
- a hybrid online R.N.-to-B.S.N. program
Students in the traditional and accelerated second-degree B.S.N. programs take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), and Marymount is proud to report a yearly pass rate of above 90% by these students.
