About the Program

The Graduate Nursing Program is designed for nurses to continue studies within their profession to seek advanced practice and an advanced degree in nursing. There are three pathways to obtain an advanced degree in nursing; Master’s in Science of Nursing with a Family Nurse Practitioner concentration, Post-Master’s Doctorate in Nursing Practice and Baccalaureate in Science of Nursing to Doctorate of Nursing Practice (BSN-DNP). The master’s curriculum provides clinical preparation for becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). The curriculum educates nurses in evidence-based practice, quality improvement and systems thinking, and leadership. Graduates may seek leadership roles as advanced practice nurses, managers of quality initiatives, executives in health care organizations, directors of clinical programs and faculty responsible for clinical program delivery and clinical teaching.
