Masters of Science

Goshen College offers a master’s of science nursing degree with a family nurse practitioner track.

The program is designed for the registered nurse who is a graduate of a baccalaureate program in nursing, and is conveniently designed with courses meeting once per week during late afternoon and evening hours. The family nurse practitioner program is comprised of 48 credit hours including 642 clock hours of clinical practice with a preceptor. The program of study prepares students for the family nurse practitioner certification exam through the American Nurse Credentialing Center or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

A distinctive feature of our program is an emphasis on nursing care in a culturally diverse society. We give heed to providing care that values understanding of the patient story. Included in this is a focus on care to those who are marginalized in our society.
