Specialty tracks include:
- Advanced Practice
- Nurse Educator
- Nursing Administration
Students complete 10-15 semester hours of undergraduate coursework and 10-13 hours of graduate course work before progressing to unconditional admission to the graduate program. This program reduces the number of baccalaureate hours by 12 (4-5 courses dependent on the Master’s track selected). Students do not receive a Bachelor of Science degree. This program allows the student to begin the Master’s Program after 2 semesters with 10-13 graduate hours completed. Depending on the master’s specialty chosen, the master’s degree can be completed in an additional 3-6 semesters of full-time study. Students may elect to complete the program on a part-time basis.
