Maryville College participates in Vanderbilt University’s Senior Year in Absentia program in which students spend three years in coursework at Maryville College followed by two years of course work at Vanderbilt. At the end of the program, students will have earned the Masters degree in Nursing from Vanderbilt University and the Bachelor of Science in Health Care from Maryville College. Graduates are qualified for advanced nursing practice in a variety of specialties.
Students who want to consider other combinations of transfer or graduate programs that prepare them for professional nursing practice should meet with the Nursing advisor early in their academic program.
Maryville College Works is a comprehensive career preparation program that is integrated into the College’s four-year liberal arts curriculum. Key components include assessment, advising, networking and professional experiences.
