Our Residency Experience Gives You Authentic FNP Practice

Lauded as one of the most exciting parts of the nursing curriculum, Marymount’s residency program prepares nursing students in applying holistic care, knowledge and skills in a real setting.

The on-campus residency occurs at the end of the advanced health assessment course (NUF 500) for 5 days. Intentionally placed at these points in the curriculum, professors assess your clinical skills set for safe, effective practice as advanced practice nurses in primary care.
