Master of Science in Nursing
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program helps advance nurses in to leadership roles by allowing them to practice as an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN), as well as pursue leadership roles in non-clinical settings. We offer three areas of specialization: Nurse Executive Leadership, Nurse Educator, and Nurse Practitioner.
Our nursing programs were created with the working nurse in mind. Most of our programs only have class once a week or on the weekends to ensure convenience and flexibility for your busy schedule. Also, if you are a registered nurse with a BSN degree, you will receive a 30% discount on our tuition for any of the Master of Science in Nursing programs.
Nursing Executive Leadership
The Nurse Executive Leadership specialization prepares nurses to pursue management and administrative roles by providing the skills necessary to manage departments or nursing units within the health care setting. This program begins in the fall and can be completed within two-and-a-half years.
The Nurse Educator specialization is for nurses who wish to share their clinical expertise in an educator role. Through this specialization, nurses will be able to serve as a leader in curriculum development as well as an educator in clinical and classroom settings. This program begins in the fall and can be completed within two-and-a-half years.
The Nurse Practitioner specialization allows nurses to choose between the Geriatric-Adult Acute Care or Family Care track. This program takes three years to complete. We also offer a Post-Baccalaureate Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) where you can earn both your MSN and DNP within four years.
