Anna Maria College Takes Nursing Program Online

January 28th, 2011


Anna Maria College (AMC), a Catholic liberal arts institution in Massachusetts, will bring its nursing degree program online in January 2011 to cater to working professionals.

The institution’s registered nurse-to-bachelor of science in nursing (RN-BSN) program will service individuals who wish to obtain a degree in a quick and convenient manner. To further expedite their completion of the track, the college will offer up to six credit hours to students who have professional experience.

To Anne Marie Catalano, director of nursing programs, the time each student spends working in the field is “an invaluable asset that should be recognized and rewarded as he or she makes the important decision to pursue an advanced degree.”

Students who choose to enroll in AMC’s online RN-BSN curriculum will study the latest trends in holistic care. Courses will feature an emphasis on the health of a patient’s mind, body and spirit, in addition to a strong focus on the type of transcultural and multicultural nursing that is ideal for community-based care.

College officials say the Bureau of Labor Statistics' positive nursing career projections are one reason why they decided to offer the program online.
