The Master of Science in Nursing, offered by The University of Iowa, requires a minimum of 39 s.h. of graduate credit. The program has a clinical nurse leader focus. It is designed to build on general and professional baccalaureate study.
The M.S.N. curriculum consists of a core component of 21 s.h., which students take with College of Nursing doctoral students, and a specialization component of 18 s.h. that centers on the clinical nurse leader role.
- Students who constantly envision new ways to create change or innovate to improve health care delivery or nursing practice can thrive in a M.S.N. Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) role.
- The program prepares the CNL with the necessary knowledge and skills to make a difference both in a microsystem or a changing work environment. Upon graduation, CNL students are eligible for the certification exam.
- The M.S.N. Clinical Nurse Leader provides students with eight essential roles to ensure job flexibility, including clinician, educator, advocate, outcomes manager, information manager, systems analyst, a role as a member of the profession, and with outcomes-based skills.
