Program Highlights

Transition from a BSN to an MSN

Earn a Master of Science in Nursing while preparing for certification as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN). You will train to become a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP), and/or Emergency Nurse Practitioner (ENP).

Designed for Practicing Nurses

Keep caring for your patients as you invest in your career. Our program is designed for working nurses like you. Because our program is primarily online and only 5-6 semesters, students can continue to work as RNs in their communities. We believe it is important to continue practicing so you can directly implement what you are learning for your patients.

Move Into Advanced Clinical Practice and Leadership

Earning your MSN opens up many doors in the nursing field. Advance your clinical practice and patient care. Become an evidence-based practitioner. Move into leadership roles as you differentiate yourself from other nurses, and prepare yourself for clinical practice and future leadership.

Transform the Patient Experience

Through their patient-centered approach to healthcare delivery, nurses have the opportunity to transform the conventional healthcare experience. Your nurturing perspective can ease patient anxieties in primary care, mental health, and emergency care settings. Make patients feel understood, listened to, and cared for through sensitive, individualized attention.

Go from an MSN to a DNP

Your journey does not need to end with the MSN. Go from your Master of Science in Nursing to a Doctor of Nursing Practice. Our DNP program is designed for experienced nurses who are ready to take the crowning step in their nursing education.
