The curriculum of the MSN is designed to prepare professional registered nurses for APN roles as culturally competent educators and leaders. All students enrolled in the program will be required to take seven graduate core courses consisting of 20 semester credit hours. Additionally, students are required to select a concentration of either nursing education or nursing leadership. Each of these concentrations will consist of 16-18 credit hours. Included in these hours is a variable credit (3-5 hours) thesis or project.
The nursing education concentration will focus on preparing nurses to facilitate learning in various environments through the application of knowledge in instructional design, curriculum development, technology utilization, and evaluation of learning. The leadership concentration will focus on developing nursing leaders who are able to influence, design, manage, transform, and evaluate the evolution of nursing services and care delivery.
