Monmouth University’s 36-48 credit Master of Science in Nursing will prepare you for an advanced role as an educator, administrator, or practitioner in a wide range of fields. Our program is ideal for current nurses who wish to move ahead in their careers, as well as those who want to enter the dynamic, emerging field of forensic nursing.
The faculty members in the Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies are committed to providing students with more than just the skills of an advanced practice nurse. Far more than just a clinical perspective, those enrolled are part of a teaching/learning process that promotes the development of the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor abilities contributing to professional growth.
Some of the many factors building momentum for change in nursing education at the graduate level include: increased complexity of patient care, national concerns about the quality of care and patient safety, and shortages of nursing personnel, which requires a higher level of preparation for leaders who can design and assess care. As the demand for highly educated nurses continues to increase, nurses are reporting earning higher salaries in the past year and more than they did five years ago (Source: Minority Nurse).
All of our MSN classes are designed to accommodate the working nurse and are offered in the evening, either online or hybrid (alternating weeks on campus).
