About

The graduate Clinical Nurse Specialist programs at Edgewood College hold a mission designed to develop nurses into leaders with advanced knowledge, Dominican values, and the ability to contribute to the changing, diverse healthcare environment. Advanced practice roles in nursing require further enhancement of critical reasoning and decision making skills as theory is translated into practice.

Overview

We offer two tracks to reach your educational and professional goals of becoming a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS).  You can choose to either complete the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)-CNS or continue to add the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)-Executive Leadership degree as well.

The advantage to Edgewood College’s program structure is that after receiving the MSN-CNS, you can seek certification and work in that capacity while continuing on with your doctoral level coursework to complete your DNP.
