At Yale University School of Nursing, students from diverse backgrounds join together to participate in a program that provides a unique approach to graduate education in nursing. The academic environment encourages the appreciation for high standards, the pursuit of excellence in nursing practice, and the accomplishment of the School's mission of "better health for all people".


The Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) curriculum at Yale University is designed to prepare students as practitioners in selected specialties and in evidence-based practice so they may assume roles as clinician-scholars. 

Learning outcomes

Nurses in advanced practice are professionals committed to the delivery and study of high-quality clinical service. The program of study in the School is viewed as preparation for a variety of leadership roles to help shape the health care system of the future.

The Yale School of Nursing admits both registered nurses who have a baccalaureate degree and college graduates with no previous nursing education. The graduate nurse moves directly into a chosen area of clinical specialization.

The curriculum places emphasis upon clinical competence and nursing scholarship. Each student is educated to function in an expanded role in the specialty area of his or her choice. Employers recognize the superior preparation YSN graduates receive and actively seek to recruit them.
