Take your nursing experience further

No matter which stage of life patients are in, nurses play an important role in the delivery of healthcare. You help save lives, decode medical jargon, support families and comfort patients. You work in hospitals, clinics, classrooms, labs or living rooms. Now that you’re an experienced nurse, it may be time to move into the next phase of your career. A Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) can help.

Our on-campus and online MSN courses are aligned with leading industry organizations, such as the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). Programs prepare nurses for leadership roles in a variety of specialties, including:

  • Nurse Administration — Learn how to coach other nurses, lead during organizational change and step into the business side of nursing
  • Nurse Education — Influence the future of nursing and healthcare by teaching in a variety of educational settings
  • Informatics — Understand how to use data to inform decisions and improve patient outcomes
  • Family Nurse Practitioner* — Provide primary and specialty medical care to patients and enjoy greater autonomy in your nursing practice

* The Family Nurse Practitioner specialty has pre-verification, clinical hour and residency requirements. Program requirements vary in California.

All of our MSN program specialty areas help prepare students to sit for national certification exams, and most can be completed in less than two years.
