Saint Mary offers multiple new and cutting-edge offerings available to prospective students including the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT)* program, the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing track, and the high-demand Health Information Management major. USM also offers its well-regarded traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing, online Master of Science in Nursing and RN-to-BSN degrees, a Healthcare Informatics program, and traditional undergraduate pre-professional health paths.

Attendees at the expo will be able to speak directly with USM’s expert health sciences faculty about their potential career paths, tour Saint Mary health care education facilities, and watch equipment and lab demonstrations.

“The University of Saint Mary is nationally recognized for meeting high standards of academic excellence,” said Dr. Bryan Le Beau, USM’s vice president of academic affairs.

“For the past several years, we have committed those high standards to educating the health care professionals of tomorrow, where there is a growing need. Our founders, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, have rich traditions of health care education and of meeting society’s needs. Saint Mary is continuing these traditions and offering students a chance at rewarding careers.”
