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 class discussions and faculty mentoring, yet large enough to help you transform the world. Notre Dame nurses often become leaders in academia, 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.

Nursing Poverty Simulation 2016

Senior students in the Schools of Nursing and Education participated in a poverty simulation. Students role-play a month in poverty, trying to maintain their basic needs. They must navigate dropping kids of at day care, going to work, paying a mortgage, picking up medications and visiting social services. At the end of a "month" students come together for a debriefing to discuss the challenges they faced and how their experience will influence the care they provide.

Blessing of the Hands

The Blessing of the Hands is an annual tradition in the School of Nursing when the School Sisters of Notre Dame anoint the hands of nursing students and faculty in a communal sending forth to go and heal.
