Online Family Nurse Practitioner Programs Marymount's curriculum for the online FNP programs emphasize evidenced-informed care and compassion to prepare nurses for advanced practice—with a focus on primary care—for individuals or families throughout their lifespan.
Students will translate theoretical knowledge from the sciences and humanities into the delivery of advanced nursing care. They will design preventative clinical strategies to promote health and reduce the risk of disease. They will also demonstrate advanced practice competencies in the delivery of safe, quality care to diverse populations.
Clinical Placement Services Marymount works with its students to offer a high-quality placement experience that meets the university's clinical requirements and prepares them for success in their future practice. This service allows students to focus on their coursework and the core competencies that will direct their clinicals.
Online Doctor of Education Marymount's curriculum for the EdD program applies proven strategies and practices to shape transformative leaders and architects of change who make significant contributions to educational agencies, organizations, and communities.
The online EdD is designed for working professionals who want to promote change across diverse instructional and organizational settings; key collaborations with diverse audiences and stakeholders; and innovative problem-solving to improve processes and analytical thinking skills, which foster actionable solutions.
