Program Details

Set your sights on your ultimate goal, and advance quickly to the BSN and the MS in Nursing degree. This program allows students to complete three graduate level courses in the BSN portion of the curriculum which provides a head start in the Master of Science program.

After completion of the BSN portion of the program, you will continue to complete classes for your master’s degree in the same format as the BSN coursework. Within the master’s portion of the program, you will complete graduate level nursing courses along with courses in a chosen focus area – education or management.

The Education focus includes teaching and learning theory, curriculum development and evaluation. The Management focus entails course work in leadership development, financial management, current legal and economic requirements and industry trends. Both focus options include practicum experiences that total 210 hours providing you with an opportunity to apply theory in authentic health care management or education environments.
