The primary educational objective of the Master of Science in Nursing program is to increase the career and educational opportunities available to registered nurses in the university's service region.

Graduates will be prepared to assume some leadership and management roles.

The Master of Science in Nursing program is designed to build upon the BSN degree. Students in this program are prepared to function at advanced levels with an expanded knowledge of theory, research and clinical application.
