The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program, accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, Inc.* enhances the knowledge and skills of registered nurses with baccalaureate-degree preparation. The program prepares advanced practice nurses to function in leadership roles in practice and educational settings. Advanced nursing theory and research provide the foundation for nurses to influence the future of nursing and health care.
Students complete core courses in advanced nursing content and process, as well as on leadership skills. Specializations assist students to concentrate on developing increased knowledge and/or skills in a specific area of content or advanced practice role. Thirty-nine credits are required for completion of the degree.
This course series focuses on Integrative health care, a synthesis or blend of conventional care with alternative and complementary healing therapies. Those with little or some knowledge in the field can learn more about the background and current status of integrative care, as well as health policy, legal, regulatory, and ethical issues. An overview of commonly used alternative and complementary healing therapies provides a strong foundation for continued learning. Participants develop a proposal for an integrative health care project or course, based on their current or future work setting.
This credit-bearing specialization is also available as a certificate program for post-baccalaureate students. The three courses in the integrative health care specialization/certificate program are available at campuses offering nursing or heath care degree programs using on ground and/or flexnet delivery, as well as through the online campus.
