2. Unmatched Student Support

At Marymount, your Student Support Advisor advises you about degree paths, works through tuition costs and plans, checks in periodically to discuss your needs and checks on your progress, answers questions about curriculum, connects you to academic resources and keeps you on track for graduation. They will partner with you from the very start, alleviating any concerns and helping you to enroll for your first semester.

We prepare our nursing students with the tools, knowledge and confidence to pass the ANCC (American Nursing Credentialing Center) certification exam or AANP (American Association of Nurse Practitioners) certification exam. This is the final step in your journey — one we believe can and should be a one-time event. Because of our direct one-on-one support, unmatched anywhere else, our nursing students have a 100% pass rate on first attempt.

3. Situated at the Healthcare Policy Epicenter

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. Guaranteed Clinical Placement

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

At Marymount, 100% of our nursing students are placed within 100 miles of their place of residence, with a majority securing sites within 40 miles.
