Graduate Nursing Programs

Master of Science in Nursing - Nurse Practitioner (MS)

The Master of Science in Nursing - Nurse Practitioner program is transitioning to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. The final class will enter in fall 2014. (Individuals who wish to pursue primary care/nurse practitioner study following this deadline may do so through the DNP program.) Application deadline: April 3, 2014

Master of Science in Nursing - Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL)

The Master of Science degree program for the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) prepares nurses for horizontal leadership positions through which evidenced-based care for groups of patients will be managed. Application deadline: April 3, 2014

Master's Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN)

The deadline for admission to the last planned MEPN class was January 15, 2013. The Master's Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN) has become the Doctor Entry Program in Nursing (DEPN). This program is no longer accepting applications.

Direct Entry Program in Nursing (DEPN)

This accelerated, alternative-entry program is for those who have not graduated from a nursing program, and who hold a baccalaureate or higher degree in another field. Application deadline: Dec. 1, 2013 for fall 2014

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP)

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree program is planned to begin in the fall of 2015. There will be two entry options: one for registered nurses with a baccalaureate or higher degree (in nursing or another field), and another for post-master's applicants who want to pursue the DNP. Post-master's nurse practitioners wishing to complete the DNP program may begin part-time study in the spring of 2014. Application deadline: April 3, 2015 for fall 2015

For more information about the Doctor of Nursing Practice, read the fact sheet from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
