MSN Program

Our Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program will prepare you to make a positive impact on the lives of your patients and future nurses. We provide the opportunity for you to specialize as a family nurse practitioner or nurse educator, both of which can be completed in 2 ½ years. Since December 2013, our graduates have earned a 100% pass rate on the FNP exam. Our nurse educator program meets the educational requirements for the CNE exam. Additionally, our nurse educator program includes two practicums; one a clinical focus and the last practicum of 300 hours allows students to experience the role of the nurse educator.
Cost: $710 per credit
Delivery: courses are offered on-ground
Courses begin: January and August

RN-MSN Program

The streamlined RN-MSN program of study provides RNs with the options to earn a master’s degree in less time than it would take to earn a BSN degree followed by a MSN degree. You can complete the program in approximately three and a half years, dependent on transfer credits, and will position yourself for career advancement by specializing as a family nurse practitioner or nurse educator.
Cost: $430 per undergraduate credit and $710 per graduate credit
Delivery: courses are offered in online, on-ground, and hybrid formats

Nurse Educator Certificate

We crafted our nurse educator certificate for RNs who have already earned a master’s degree and want to teach nursing. You will gain the knowledge and experience to teach in both academic and non-academic settings – and graduate ready to inspire the next generation of nurses. This certificate is offered fully online.
