You’re ready to take a more active role in delivering quality healthcare and shaping health policy. Through the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Creighton’s College of Nursing, you’ll gain the advanced knowledge and skills you’ll need to be a leader in today’s challenging health care environment.


The MSN program consists of mostly online classes, but you are required to have some visits to campus. You can be a full-time or part-time student—whatever best fits your life. And, you’re not required to take the GRE or submit a thesis. U.S. News & World Report recently named it one of the best online graduate nursing programs.
