Villa Maria School of Nursing

  • An in-demand program for an in-demand career path

    With a placement rate of 100% for graduates, and licensure exam pass rates averaging 96% for the last four years, the Villa Maria School of Nursing is one of the most in-demand destinations at Gannon University.

    As a student at the Villa Maria School of Nursing, you will:

    • Benefit from a low, student-to-faculty ratio of 10:1
    • Get hands-on experience—at least 980 hours of it—before you graduate
    • Contribute to the more than 3,000 service-learning hours students and faculty contribute each year
    • Participate in clinical experiences with more than 40 health care agencies in northwestern Pennsylvania
    • Be able to choose an online RN to BSN completion option, RN to MSN option and a MSN program at Gannon
    • Provide holistic nursing care to individuals, groups, families and entire populations through our community-based curriculum

    Gannon’s nursing programs have held approval from the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing since 1953 and have maintained consistent accreditation for nearly 50 years.

    With a shortage of RNs projected through at least 2025, the Villa Maria School of Nursing is an excellent choice for a secure, in-demand career that has genuine purpose and meaning.
