Master’s and Post-Master’s Programs


The Master of Science (MS) degree program prepares registered nurses as advanced clinical practitioners within a specialty. Students learn to evaluate the health status of individuals and families, build interdependent relationships through the health care system, participate in and make use of research, and analyze issues that influence and contribute to the development of nursing.
