Preparing leaders for one of the most in-demand professions in the nation—the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects nursing jobs to increase 26 percent by 2020—our B.S. in Nursing helps meet that demand. Our program provides nurses with the knowledge and skills to assume influential roles in healthcare that extend beyond traditional practices and healthcare facilities. Our graduates possess the expertise, values and vision to serve their communities as highly qualified caregivers and leaders in the profession.

Accelerated BSN
Looking to change careers? Let us put you on a fast track to success. Our Professional Acceleration to Healthcare (PATH) program allows students who have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing to complete our B.S. in Nursing program in 14 months. Studying full time, you will begin in a cohort and advance in the program with your peers while learning from dedicated faculty who offer a comprehensive approach to the didactic, clinical and research components of the program. The PATH program only offers a summer start, and the application deadline is January 15. Specific criteria are required for admission, including prerequisite courses, which must be successfully completed by the time a candidate applies to the program.

Our R.N. to B.S. in Nursing was designed with you, the working nurse, in mind. As a registered nurse, you seek to advance through the profession, as well as complete your educational goals. Our convenient program allows you to fulfill those aspirations with classes scheduled generally one day a week and online (starting Fall 2013).

Master of Science in Nursing
The master’s in nursing programs facilitate the student’s transition into advanced practice nursing roles, specifically the roles of nurse educator, nurse practitioner and nursing administrator. We foster the professional development necessary for providing leadership in the delivery of healthcare, and provide a foundation for doctoral study. At the master’s level, nursing education is concentrated on increasing specialization in the diverse theoretical nursing foundations and specialization in advanced nursing practice. We expect that our graduates will contribute to the development of nursing as a profession through the development, implementation and evaluation of advanced practice roles.

PhD in Nursing
The program will prepare you to advance knowledge of the discipline and contribute to the science of nursing. Through teaching, research and leadership, you will advance health through innovation and information while discussing and debating a broad range of theories. The Ph.D. in Nursing may be taken on a full-time (9 credits per semester) or part-time basis (6 credits per semester). Courses are offered in executive format one day a week. Students are admitted only in the fall semester and proceed through the program in cohorts. A seminar format is used for most nursing courses.

Nurses who complete the Master of Science in Nursing Education will be prepared to fill the educator role.

This pathway enables RNs who hold baccalaureate degrees in non-nursing fields to attain advanced standing in the nursing graduate program. Students entering this pathway must document their achievement of identified baccalaureate nursing competencies through a process of academic transcript and resume review, and a personal interview with the nursing faculty. The competencies were identified by the faculty as foundational for nursing graduate study.
