Graduate Program Overview

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 Gerontology 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), Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) or Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (CNEA) and who wish to become Family Nurse Practitioners or Nurse Anesthetists.
