Since September 2009, the University of Mary has partnered with Truman Medical Center, Kansas City, Missouri to make available to eligible TMC employees of certain TMC affiliated entities and any other students, graduate programs in nursing and business.
Servant leadership, evidence-based practice, cost-effectiveness, patient-centered care, healthcare quality and patient safety are a few themes common to all programs. Each program is carefully crafted to prepare graduates in their ability to best meet the growing challenges of current healthcare times. Our students enjoy learning from highly qualified faculty who are experts in their field and often times continue to engage in practice settings related to courses they teach bringing relevancy and currency to the curriculum.
Through an on-site "cohort" format, students are able to progress through their program with the same people, forming strong work groups and earning their degrees together.
The following University of Mary programs are available at Truman Medical Center Corporate Academy:
