After that, you’ll enter Wilkes University’s 39-credit  Master of Science in Nursing with a Nurse Executive concentration online master’s degree program. (Please note that no pass-through bachelor’s degree is awarded.) The Nurse Executive MSN degree coursework helps prepare program graduates to take the national certification exam leading to Nurse Executive Board Certification.
