The Master of Nursing program prepares RNs for clincal practice in a range of settings as leaders, managers, care providers, and educators. We offer the following curriculum options:
- Communities, Populations and Health
- Healthcare Leadership
- Nurse Educator
The curriculum has a strong emphasis on mentoring, both in terms of fieldwork placements and with the faculty. The core coursework for all curriculum options includes research, health systems, health policy, leadership, diversity and social issues related to health.
All students pursue scholarly inquiry by completing a scholarly inquiry requirement. In addition, students take 3 - 4 courses in their curriculum option and may choose from courses in the other curriculum options to fulfill the requirement of six credits of related coursework. Two quarters of fieldwork provide students with an opportunity to participate in a setting that assists them to meet their career goals.
