Maryville University, Pearson Extend Online Advanced Nursing Degrees Partnership

Long-term renewal for one of the nation's fastest-growing private universities addresses the growing demand for nurse practitioners

St. Louis, 12th November 2021 - Today, Pearson and Maryville University announced the renewal of their longstanding partnership to offer a suite of online nursing degrees. This renewal with Maryville, among the top five fastest-growing private universities in the nation by The Chronicle of Higher Education, extends the curriculum and offerings for the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), and Post-Master Certificate (PMC) programs.

The programs are designed to meet students' unique career goals, including five nurse practitioner (NP) options. The specialisations include Adult Geriatric NP, Family NP, Pediatric NP, Adult/Geriatric Acute NP, and Psychiatric-Mental Health NP. The DNP program also has a novel approach with a streamlined curriculum - a BSN to DNP - allowing the student to accelerate from a bachelor to a doctorate in a single degree path. This partnership runs through 2033 and creates lifelong pathways to help build the nursing workforce of tomorrow. According to Pearson's 2021 Global Learner Survey, 45% of college students nationwide were inspired by the pandemic to consider a career in healthcare or science.

Opportunities have emerged for the next generation to take on leadership roles and help solve the challenges of our healthcare system. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a need of 110,000 NPs by 2029, a 52% employment growth, which this partnership seeks to fill. Maryville will continue to utilise the full scope of Pearson's higher education online offerings.

Mark Lombardi, Ph.D., president of Maryville University, said: "Our continued partnership with Pearson enables us to address the nursing shortage by scaling access to high-quality education for future healthcare leaders. Our model focuses on meeting the needs of nursing students across the country, often in rural areas where there are minimal options for nurses seeking advanced degrees. Our graduates are vital contributors to the health and well-being of their communities."

Kees Bol, managing director, Pearson Online Learning Services, said: "Since 2011 we have enjoyed a strong, close partnership with Maryville, consistently delivering online learning solutions that meet the evolving demands of today and answer the challenges of tomorrow. As we enter this next phase, we are confident and excited to work together with Maryville to reach their goals."

Pearson's Online Learning Services group partners with over 30 higher education institutions around the world, supporting over 450 undergraduate and graduate online degree programs, certificates, and short course programs.
