Program Description:

The Department of Nursing emphasizes quality teaching complemented by scholarly and creative expression, clinical expertise, community service, and service to the nursing profession.

Graduates of the master’s degree program increase their professional expertise by a focus in a specialty area and more depth in scholarship.

The program has three areas of focus: Public Heath Nursing, Nursing Education, and Nursing Management.

The majority of the University of Hartford’s graduate nursing students are working full time and pursuing their degree on a part-time basis. We are committed to making it easier for working nurses to pursue advanced study on a part-time basis.

Classes generally meet once a week and are conveniently scheduled in late afternoon and evening.
