Program Details

Liberty University offers an online Master of Science in Nursing degree with a concentration in Nurse Education.  The degree program is available in the virtual format to accommodate busy professionals with obligations to family, careers and faith.  The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program yields a Nurse Educator degree with the specific course work emphasizing the teaching aspect of the medical field.  Students earning a masters level of education from Liberty University will have the opportunity to build on previously earned health education and participate and learn from experienced faculty.  The nurse educator concentration is tailored to meet inpidual career options of professional nurses and those who seek to advance in current positions.

The Master of Science in Nursing program is designed for students who already hold a Registered Nursing License, and uses the bachelors degree as a solid foundation for the intricate addition of a specialized MSN curriculum.  Each student will complete 42 credit hours of course work as well as meeting the requirements for in- and out-of-state practicums.  It is the students' responsibility to be aware of specific state and regional certification minimums.  The MSN program prepares students to enter and excel in nursing positions that are in need of well trained and skilled graduates, to become significant additions to a medical team.  The advanced teaching coursework will give graduates the abilities to properly educate future undergraduate nursing students.

Successful graduates of the MSN degree program will continue on with the mission statement of Liberty University to “To produce Christ-centered men and woman with values, knowledge and skills required to impact tomorrow’s world…and provide encouragement in choosing and following a vocation as a calling to do the will of God throughout all of life.”  The students will carry a Christian foundation of ethics into the public and private sectors of the healthcare industry.

Prospective students of the online MSN degree program are encouraged to review both curriculums offered under the concentration, as to be well-informed of both options and to choose the best fit for future career aspirations and personal goals.
