The Department of Nursing offers course work leading to a Master of Science in Nursing degree with specialization in either the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program, Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialist (AH) program, or Nurse Anesthesia (NA) program. The Department also offers a Master of Science in Nursing degree for nurses who hold advanced practice certification as either certified registered nurse practitioners (CRNPs), certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), or certified nurse midwives (CNMs). In addition, a post-master’s certificate option is also available for registered nurses (RNs) who already have a master’s degree in nursing from a Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) or National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) accredited program, and who wish to become Family Nurse Practitioners or Nurse Anesthetists.
