The Mount's School of Nursing offers the Master of Science in Nursing in two nurse practitioner programs: the Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner (ANP) and the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).


Based on the most recent data, 90% of students typically complete the MS in Nursing program within four years of entrance. Responses to a survey administered six months after graduation reported that 100% of the respondents who received a master's degree in nursing were employed full time.

When you earn your MS in Nursing, you'll be ready for a career in practice, teaching, research, or doctoral study. You will also be much in demand, as the need for nurse practitioners is at an all-time high, and is expected to continue for many years to come.


The Mount's School of Nursing programs have achieved accreditation from the prestigious Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
