2. Unmatched Student Support

Our Online Programs

At Marymount, your Student Success Advisor advises you about degree paths, works through tuition costs and plans, checks in periodically to discuss your needs and monitor your progress, answers questions about curriculum, connects you to academic resources and keeps you on track for graduation.

Because of our unmatched one-on-one support, our nursing students have a 100% first-attempt pass rate on the ANCC and AANP national certification exams

3. Situated at the Healthcare Policy Epicenter

Our Online Programs

Based in Arlington, Marymount University is just “over the hill” from Washington, D.C., giving our nursing students a distinct advantage.

During residency, nurses are afforded an opportunity to meet in person with legislators — at the State Capitol or in Richmond — to become confident leaders who can affect change for better patient outcomes. You will learn to advocate for your patients as you gain legislative process and policy knowledge.

4. Clinical Placement Services Free of Charge

One of the greatest advantages to pursuing an advanced nursing degree at Marymount is our clinical placement service, offered at no additional cost to you. Stay focused on your career and studies while your assigned Placement Specialist expedites a search for you, identifying sites and preceptors close to your home.

Marymount’s Clinical Placement Team has a high success rate at placing students in nearby clinical sites, with a majority of students securing sites within 40 miles.
