About the University of Saint Mary

A private, Catholic college in Kansas, the University of Saint Mary (USM) is an accredited institution that was founded by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in 1923. The school offers a variety of on-campus undergraduate and graduate programs at two campuses in Kansas, as well as four programs that can be completed entirely online.

Undergraduate students can choose between two online programs - a RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing or a Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management. The RN to BSN program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the BSHIM program has earned Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) accreditation. At the graduate level, online students can enroll in a CCNE-accredited Master of Science in Nursing program, which has Nurse Administrator and Nurse Educator concentration options, or a Master of Business Administration program that is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). MBA students have six concentration options: Leadership and Organizational Health, Finance, General Management, Health Care Management, Human Resource Management, and Marketing/Advertising Management.

Online students use the school's 'Engage' online learning platform to access their courses and communicate with their classmates and instructors. They also have access to 24/7 technical support through a Personal Support Center and have a dedicated student services coordinator who provides support and guidance throughout their degree program.
