This MSN graduate program is designed to build upon the students’ baccalaureate nursing education and professional experience. This program prepares professional nurses with a wide range of educational experiences.

As an educator, you inspire and equip the next generation of nurses with the knowledge they need to succeed. As a leader, you use your experience to guide and direct nursing staff. And as a manager, you ensure that the organization is run efficiently.

All these roles require an understanding of the nursing profession, as well as strong communication and organizational skills. But a nursing career also offers you the ability to make a real difference in the lives of patients. Nursing is both an art and a science, and with the right skills, you can make an impact on the lives of those around you.

There are two specialties available: Nurse Educator and Nurse Leadership and Management.
