Our St. Vincent Partnership Makes the Difference

Because your success is important to us, we work hard to maximize your clinical experience while in the ABSN program—and our partnership with St. Vincent makes it possible. Not only do the St. Vincent nurses go out of their way to give our students the best possible patient care experiences, the leadership staff gives our students a unique perspective on nursing that goes beyond the bedside. 

The ABSN leadership class has helped me understand what goes on behind-the-scenes at a hospital. I’ve met the chief nursing officer at St. Vincent, gone to meetings with directors, and listened in on nursing and PCAT interviews.
