Our program is designed to be flexible in meeting your learning needs. The curriculum is implemented using a fall and spring semester distance learning approach complemented by on-campus summer sessions. A non-distance learning option is available for international students. Whether you are on campus or at home, the College provides you with a personalized experience -- one of the hallmarks of a Villanova Nursing program.
Fall and Spring classes are delivered via distance learning and are scheduled between 4:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Eastern time on two weeknights, Monday through Friday.
Summer semester classes are taught on the Villanova University campus. All students are required to attend the summer sessions while they are enrolled in course work. Designed as a 51-credit program, the length of the program will vary depending on previous education, currency of graduate education and individual needs.
Students will begin the program with an orientation at the beginning of Summer Session I (late May/early June). At that time students will continue their on-campus course work over a period of two to three weeks.
The Doctoral Program is designed to prepare teacher-scholars in nursing for academic careers in higher education.
