Master of Science in Nursing
University of Cincinnati-Online

Program Details

If you hold a BSN and at least one year of professional experience, consider elevating your career with an online MS in Nursing from the University of Cincinnati.  This MSN program is designed with the working professional in mind and can be earned entirely through distance learning.  Biostatistics, clinical theory, healthcare policy and pharmacology are taught within UC’s MSN program which gives you the opportunity to specialize in different areas:

  • Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)
  • Nurse Midwifery 
  • Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner
  • Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP)

The Midwifery specialization requires two visits to the UC campus during the program. All specializations require significant fieldwork that can be completed long-distance with proper approval. Note that you should check with your individual state’s regulatory board for certification and licensure requirements before enrolling in an out-of-state MSN program.
