Overview

Building on a professional nursing education at the undergraduate level, the mission of the MSN program in the College of Graduate and Professional Studies is to prepare advanced nurses for delivery of health care with diverse populations and leadership roles in rapidly changing health care systems. This is accomplished through the integration of advanced professional knowledge and Judeo-Christian beliefs.

As students begin their MSN, they have the opportunity to choose the topic of three out of their 11 courses. These three courses will assist in broadening their knowledge in a particular focus area. These courses allow students to gain an edge in the nursing industry. These courses center on the following tracks:
