Description The Master of Nursing program is a 36 credit hour, two-phase program. In the first phase students complete required courses and focused electives in practice-related theory and research that are the foundation of all advanced nursing practice roles. Through seminar discussion and presentation, preparation of academic papers, and focused clinical practicum experiences, students acquire the knowledge and skills that are the basis for professional and clinical leadership. In the second phase of the program students continue to develop knowledge and skill through one of three program options: thesis, health policy practicum, or specialty nurse practitioner. Each option is accomplished through a combination of elective and required courses and/or practice experiences, and leads to completion of degree requirements.
