The College of Nursing offers the Master of Science in Nursing degree (M.S.N) for nurses seeking advanced preparation, as well as the RN to MSN Pathway for registered nurses who wish to advance their education to the graduate-level.

Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N)

The M.S.N. program builds upon the baccalaureate nursing education and prepares nurses for specialized clinical roles. Beginning Fall 2011, the M.S.N. program will introduce its fourth track: Clinical Nurse Leader. M.S.N. Students select one clinical track and one functional role for their studies in the program.

The M.S.N. program accepts applicants each semester (Fall, Spring, Summer).
