Master of Science in Nursing

Take the next step in your nursing career with an MSN

Be the change you want to see in health care

Whether you are a registered nurse looking to bolster your credentials to meet today’s higher standards or an advanced-practice nurse seeking to expand your knowledge and take on greater leadership responsibilities, our CCNE-accredited Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs can prepare you to make your next move.

With an MSN specialization, you can transition your role from direct patient care and case management to developing nursing practice standards, creating quality assurance procedures and managing complex nursing care systems.

Maximize your preparation with our MSN

Through our MSN degree programs or post-master's certificate programs, the University of Phoenix® School of Nursing can help prepare you to sit for four certification exams:

  • National League for Nursing Certified Nurse Educator Exam (CNE).
  • American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Informatics Nursing Certification (RN-BC) exam.  
  • American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Nurse Executive-Board Certification (NE-BC) exam.
  • American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Family Nurse Practitioner-Board Certified (FNP-BC) credential or the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) Family Nurse Practitioner-Certified (FNP-C) credential.
