Adult Clinical Nurse Specialist CNS RN to MSN
This program is a blend of the existing Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing programs. The RN/B curriculum will be truncated by several courses whose content will be covered in the Master’s materials. After the third semester in the course of study below, students will be eligible to transfer into the existing MS-CNS concentration, which prepares the advanced professional nurse as an advance practice nurse. The CNS addresses health care needs in the three CNS spheres of influence – the patient/client, nurses and nursing practice, and systems and organizations. The dimensions of the CNS role include clinical judgment, clinical inquiry, facilitator of learning, collaboration, systems thinking, advocacy/moral agency, caring practices, and response to diversity.
