Career Paths

The face of healthcare is changing, and it’s demanding more and more individuals who are qualified to provide exceptional patient care and lead the direction of the healthcare field. It’s why the Institute of Medicine has identified the need for more nurses to earn a doctorate-level education. With that advanced degree, nursing professionals can not only provide forward-thinking care but also lead systemic change that improves health outcomes.

Many states are lagging behind in graduating advanced practice nurses at the rate patients—and the profession—need. Upon graduation, you will enter into a field hungry for ambitious, dedicated professionals just like you.

You can help fill the needs of your community while also pushing yourself to achieve new levels of success in your career. You have the determination and motivation to be a force of change in health care. Saint Mary’s College can help you develop the tools, skills, and knowledge you need to get there.
