Program Overview

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) prepares graduates to be advanced practitioners at the forefront of healthcare, serving in a variety of roles.

The curriculum is predicated on the belief that professional nursing is an art and a science incorporating theory, research and clinical practice. All students enrolled in the MSN program share a core curriculum. Specialty areas, with the exception of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Nurse Anesthesia Program, require 36 credits. Two and three year study options are available.

If your ultimate goal is a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), learn about our DNP-Post Baccalaureate Entry program.
