M.S. Nursing

The Master of Science in Nursing degree is designed for the registered nurse who is a graduate of a baccalaureate program in nursing. Courses meet once per week during late afternoon and evening hours. The program is built on a tradition of excellence in nursing education at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A distinctive feature of the program is an emphasis on nursing care in a culturally diverse society. We believe in providing care that values understanding the stories of patients, including those who are marginalized in our society.

Two tracks of study are offered: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL). The program prepares students for the certification exam.

  • Fully accredited by Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
  • Degrees conferred: Masters of Science in Nursing with either a Family Nurse Practitioner focus or a Clinical Nurse Leader focus
  • Includes clinical experiences with approved preceptors (670 clock hours for FNP students, 500 for CNL students)
  • FNP graduates are eligible for certification through American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP); CNL grads are eligible for certification through the American Association of Colleges of Nursing
