Program Description:

This Master of Science in Nursing program prepares professional nurses for practice in an advanced practice role in order to meet the primary health care needs of women.

Graduates are prepared for independent and collaborative decision making in health promotion and maintenance, disease prevention, physical and psychosocial assessment, and the management of health and illness in women. Emphasis is given to care of women in vulnerable populations and to consideration of women’s health care needs within the context of current and future social and cultural needs.
