Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) track:
When you enroll at the Ila Faye Miller School of Nursing and Health Care Professions at UIW, you advance a mission of faith-based care that began in 1869 with the founding of the region’s first Catholic hospital. Today, the School of Nursing and Health Care Professions (SNHP) faculty, students and alumni carry on that work through regional clinics, service trips abroad and other mission-driven initiatives.
San Antonio offers SNHP student’s abundant choices for clinical experiences across a range of hospital and specialty clinic settings — both civilian and military — and in school districts around the city. And more than 65 UIW SNHP faculty serve as preceptors throughout the community.
In addition to the history of excellence and wealth of opportunities afforded by UIW, its ABSN track allows students to leverage their non-nursing bachelor’s degree to earn a BSN in as few as 16 months. And the program offers three start dates per year — in January, May and August — so they can begin their studies as soon as they are ready.

About the Program:
“Every day, Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTAs) s are transforming lives young and old by helping them to live better and more fulfilling lives. As an OTA, you can work in many different settings. Whether this be a hospital, school, nursing home, outpatient clinic, or home health, Occupational Therapy Assistants are in great demand. In fact, in 2018 the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the job outlook for OTAs (projected percent change in employment from 2018 to 2028) was 31%.
Here at St. Catherine University, we blend online and on-site curriculum to allow for a flexible schedule for working adults. This allows for 80% of our program to be online, with hands-on labs that can be done in California, Minnesota, Texas, or Virginia. You will learn to master important OT skills under expert guidance and have more than 700 hours of professional fieldwork in this accredited program that sets the standard for OTA education. We have three start dates per year, admit on a rolling basis, and still have many seats available for 2021!”
