Master of Science in Nursing
Frostburg’s M.S.N. program, in which coursework is delivered completely online, offers two tracks, Nursing Administration and Nursing Education. Prospective students would be registered nurses who have earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing. The nursing education component is designed to serve students who wish to become faculty at nursing schools or educators in patient, staff or community settings. The nursing administration track is designed to prepare nurses for management and leadership roles in nursing homes, hospital nursing departments or other clinical settings. Graduates in this track would also be qualified to teach with an administrative specialty. The program, which can be taken part time, is designed to be flexible for the needs of working professionals. All coursework is online, with face-to-face practicums arranged in the student’s home community. Students entering FSU’s R.N. to B.S.N. program also have the option of a combined B.S.N.-M.S.N. program, which will require six fewer credits than would be required if the programs were taken separately.
