Marian’s Adult Programs (MAP) makes our science and humanities prerequisites more accessible by offering them:

  • 100% online.
  • In an accelerated format (5-week course options start 9 times a year, 8-week course options start 6 times a year).
  • With seamless credit transfers with our Leighton School of Nursing.
  • With reserved seating opportunities for the ABSN program*.

*Certain restrictions apply.

Marian University's ABSN program was made for me because the professors are always very accessible, and the clinical instructors are hands-on.
