What you'll study

The Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Informatics (MSN/INF) program is designed to help nurses learn how to manage, evaluate and use data to inform decision making and improve patient outcomes. This CCNE accredited program covers key areas such as the regulations governing security and privacy of healthcare information, ethics and health information technology and how to manage informatics databases.

The curriculum is designed with input from leaders in the field and aligned with organizations such as the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN®), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). Upon completing the MSN/INF program graduates that have the required practice experience will be educationally prepared to sit for the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Informatics Nursing Certification (RN-BC).

Busy nurses can keep working toward their professional goals by taking one class as a time. We also help RN’s with bachelor degrees in unrelated fields earn their MSN more quickly with our Nursing Bridge program.
