School of Nursing

Nurses rank us in the top 10 Florida programs

Marieb College's School of Nursing delivers 100% graduate employment rates and excellent first-time certification pass rates. We develop engaged leaders who deliver transformative care, conduct research and promote evidence-based practice through academic and community partnerships.

The School of Nursing fosters community partnerships that support our robust clinical internship programs. Our undergraduate nursing students spend 4-5 semesters immersed in clinical settings where they apply their learning in professional patient-centered environments, gain an understanding of health system practices and develop confidence as compassionate caregivers. Those pursuing graduate degrees experience intensive hands-on internships in a variety of acute and primary health care settings. Another key asset of our program is Marieb Hall’s laboratory facilities which house high-fidelity simulation and assessment labs. This is where our students enjoy low faculty-to-student ratios and the individualized attention of our nurse educators. By the time you graduate, you’ll feel confident and fully prepared to do the important work of delivering superior care to the community.
