Graduate Nursing Programs | Introduction

The College of Nursing offers Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited graduate programs leading to a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) or Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree.

The MSN degree program is to prepare students for the advanced professional practice role as a primary care nurse practitioner in the areas of adult, family, or pediatrics.  Programs of study for the Master of Science degree are available to registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees in nursing.

The DNP program is a pratice-focused doctoral program in nursing that awards both the MSN degree and the terminal professional degree of DNP upon graduation.  Graduates will be employed in primary care settings, hospitals, public health agencies, and schools of nursing.  The purpose of the program is to prepare graduates who will practice nursing at the highest clinical level.  The programs of study for the DNP degree are available to registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees in nursing and to master's prepared advance practice nurses.
