About the School

Notre Dame of Maryland University is one of the region’s top educators of registered nurses, and more than 95 percent of our graduates work in Maryland hospitals and health care facilities. The School of Nursing has prepared nearly 2,000 nurses, nurse administrators and nurse educators over the past three decades.

We prepare our students to be compassionate and professional nurses in an intimate classroom environment with hands-on experience. Notre Dame of Maryland offers both a Bachelors of Science and a Master of Science in Nursing.

Notre Dame's program is small enough to transform individual students through reflective practice, engaging and challenging class discussions and faculty mentoring. Yet it is large enough to help you transform the world through service learning and study abroad opportunities. And Notre Dame nurses often become leaders in academic and service settings, and health-related organizations.

Notre Dame will change your life and the lives of the patients who count on you. Check out our programs to see the various ways we can help prepare you for a life in nursing.
