MSN Programs to Meet Your Goals

You are a licensed nurse, have your BSN degree and are ready for the graduate level. Our MSN and DNP programs are designed to help you start and continue advancing your education until you’ve reached your goals.

At the MSN level, you can choose between three professional leadership specializations or pursue your Nurse Practitioner credential with the choice of four specializations. If your goals include a Doctoral degree, our MSN program creates a clear path to your DNP.

Already have your MSN or DNP? Expand your leadership skills or pursue a new specialization with a Post-Graduate Nursing Certificate.
