Graduate Programs and Admissions


Participating in one of our graduate programs will position you as an innovative and expert nurse leader who is ready to advance professional nursing roles in diverse and complex contexts. Your graduate studies will build knowledge and skills that enable you to identify and explore important questions and issues in nursing practice and health systems, inquire systematically as you gather and generate knowledge, and articulate findings to diverse audiences. You will consider important questions relevant to your workplace, your current and future roles, health outcomes, and health system transformation. Whether your career aspirations are related to research, education, leadership, or clinical practice, your graduate studies will prepare you for current and emerging nursing roles.

To accommodate your learning needs we offer all of our core courses in the MN and PhD programs through distance and on-campus delivery; many of these are scheduled in the evening. Our programs have been designed to increase your competitiveness in today’s workforce and to advance nursing practice.
