Thinking About Becoming a Nurse?
Becoming a nurse is a life changing experience.
Registered Nurses solve problems, utilize complex critical thinking,
deliver the majority of care to patients, and routinely perform
life-saving efforts. During times such as these, more nurses are needed.
Registered nursing is one of the fastest growing career
opportunities. The national Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 22
percent increase in RN employment nationwide between 2008 and 2018. In
the Spirit of Caring, St.Vincent wants to help.
That’s why, in 2009, St.Vincent Health entered into a unique
collaboration agreement with Marian University to expand the
availability of future nurses. Together, a unique Marian University for
St.Vincent Health accelerated nursing program and special simulation lab
was developed to make it easier for individuals to change careers and
become a Registered Nurse. Today it is Indiana’s only 16 month accelerated online bachelor’s degree program in nursing.
If you already have a baccalaureate degree in a non-nursing major,
this 16-month accelerated BSN program at St.Vincent Health is for you.
The program is engaging and interactive. It blends the personal convenience
of online course study with enriched clinical learning in the Marian
University for St.Vincent Health simulation lab and at St.Vincent Health
facilities throughout Indiana. You will be guided by faculty online and
on-site in a flexible but deadline-driven setting that sufficiently
prepares you for a career in nursing.
Graduates of the program receive a BSN degree from Marian University.
They are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN in preparation for licensure as a
Registered Nurse in the state of Indiana, and are also able to apply
for graduate programs of study in nursing.
