On November 11th, Anna Maria College will welcome students interested in the healthcare industry with its Nursing and Healthcare Professions Open House.  

Throughout the day prospective students will meet with current students, faculty, staff, and outside professionals to learn more about career opportunities available to Anna Maria graduates. This allows participants to directly engage and ask questions from experts who are already in the field.  

Anna Maria College President Mary Lou Retelle, Commissioner of Health and Human Services for the City of Worcester Dr. Matilde Castiel, Chief Nursing Officer for Saint Vincent Hospital Jay Prosser, and Anna Maria College Dean of Nursing Dr. Linda Esper are among the notable speakers who will share their experiences.  

The Nursing Open House will also feature a Student Panel, Q&A sessions, networking opportunities, and presentations that relay the latest in healthcare technology and discuss some of the hurdles that healthcare professionals face.  

“This is a unique opportunity for prospective students to hear directly from health care professionals and current nursing students on the merits of the profession and how their education prepared them to excel in their respective fields,” said John McLaughlin, Dean of Undergraduate Admission. “Prospective students also are awarded a $500 visit grant applied towards their tuition when they enroll.” 

Anna Maria’s nursing graduates score above the national average with a 91% pass rate.
