M.S.N. Degree Plan

The M.S.N. program is designed as a part-time, 39-credit-hour program to be completed in seven consecutive semesters. Students enroll in six credit hours each semester and participate in mandatory, two- to three-day on-campus intensives over several semesters during the program. On-campus intensives allow students to engage in activities that can best be completed in a face-to-face format with faculty and content experts.
