The online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at Davenport University offers an advanced level of graduate study expanding on the knowledge, skills, and competencies acquired at the baccalaureate or entry-level nursing education program. 


Admission to the Nursing program at Davenport University is competitive. We seek highly motivated nurses who have obtained their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and desire to further professional development to advance their career. Once students have been admitted into the program, they become members of a cohort. This means that the same group of students goes through the program together. 

The programme

The cohort experience provides the students with the opportunity to develop a sense of community with their classmates as they study, network, and support each other in the graduate learning experience. The cohort learning experience begins with a two day residency at the Grand Rapids W.A. Lettinga Campus and ends with another two day residency for the NURS795 MSN Special Project or NURS799 MSN Thesis.
