The M.S.N. is an innovative and flexible online program that prepares the professional nurse for leadership, advanced nursing roles, and doctoral studies (including a cooperative doctorate with The University of Florida). The M.S.N. consists of 39-40.5 semester hours of coursework. Students may select from the two areas of specialization. Nursing Education (39 semester hours) prepares students for employment in an academic or community/hospital/agency setting, while Nursing Administration (40.5 semester hours) prepares students for employment in an administrative/management position in the health care industry.
In addition to the University graduate admission requirements described in the Graduate Admissions section of the catalog, the department bases decisions for regular admission on a holistic review of credentials in which the criteria listed in the admission checklist (see right-side column) are used to assess the potential success of each applicant.
