  • Once admitted to the six semester clinical rotation, students will have a variety of educational experiences both in and out of the classroom.
  • Our close proximity to downtown Indianapolis gives our students access to top notch health care facilities. 
  • Graduates from the bachelor of science in nursing are prepared to work in any nursing setting. Marian University nurses have the benefit of a strong liberal arts foundation.

I love being a student at Marian University, because I’m not just a number. My professors know me by name, and I know they care about my academics and personal well-being."
