Master of Science in Nursing

The Master of Science in Nursing prepares students for a specialty focus to expand their career options. The program is designed to foster interdisciplinary collaborative skills and independent functioning within a focused specialty area, called an M.S. concentration. Current M.S. concentrations are Nursing Leadership, School Nursing, Nurse Educator and Women’s Health Care. Within the Women’s Health Care concentration, students will choose an emphasis as either a nurse midwife or women’s health nurse practitioner. The Nursing Leadership, School Nursing and Women’s Health Care concentrations are flexible, allowing for either full-time or part-time study. High quality resources, both on and off campus, are available for the M.S. concentrations.
