Online Prerequisites – Convenient and Interactive Learning

Are you considering a career in the healthcare industry? Marian’s Adult Programs provides a variety of online prerequisite courses that are required before you start your actual nursing or other healthcare program. Our prerequisite courses include Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Statistics, Abnormal Psychology, Human Growth and Development, and many more.

All of our courses are offered online in an accelerated format, and include interactive exercises to aid the learning process and strengthen critical thinking skills. Classes are taught by highly educated full-time and adjunct instructors from Marian University, a regionally accredited institution that is respected by employers and those within the academic community.

  • Classes begin 12 different times per year
  • Courses are five or eight weeks in length
  • Students may enroll in multiple classes at a time
  • Course content is accessible 24/7 online

While Marian University is regionally accredited, we suggest speaking with your college’s registrar or advisor before you register for the online prerequisite courses. Each institution has unique courses and thus, each institution has specific policies regarding transfer credit.

Read and complete all homework assignments.

Review what you learn and take all exams.
