Master's/Post-Master's Tracks

Master's/Post-master's Programs

Graduate students select a master's degree track depending on career interests and professional development goals. Tracks range from 45-47 credits, which include core, clinical, role development and elective courses. At the master's level, emphasis is placed on both advanced knowledge and role excellence.  

A post-master's certificate program is available to students who already have a master's degree in nursing. These programs may include course work to re-establish a base of knowledge in a particular area as well as courses in advanced practice not included in the applicant's original degree program.

Submit completed online graduate application with required documents to the Nursing Graduate Program Office by:

  • February 1 for Fall Admission (Early decision)
