Gannon University Partnership

We are please to announce an educational partnership between PONL and Gannon University to provide PONL members increased access to nursing education.

PONL Member Benefits

The Villa Maria School of Nursing

With a placement rate of 100% for graduates, and licensure exam pass rates averaging 96% for the last four years, the Villa MAria School of Nursing is one of the most in-demand destinations at Gannon University.

Gannon's nursing programs have held approval from the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing since 1953 and have maintained consistent accreditation for nearly 50 years.
