Program Details

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program prepares you to be a leader in nursing education and/or in global public health. Select 1 of 2 concentrations and earn your MSN completely online. Courses are asynchronous, which allows you to learn on your schedule.

Both concentrations provide the student with the foundational knowledge of healthcare systems, healthcare policy, nursing research methods, and healthcare informatics. You’ll apply your new knowledge in various practice settings, and a final capstone project prepares you for practice.
