Frequently Asked Questions for Nursing (M.S.)

What graduate nursing programs are offered?

We currently offer two specializations for the M.S. degree in nursing:

  • Family Nurse Practitioner
  • Nursing Education

We also offer a post-master’s certificate in nursing education.

What does it mean to be a "student-at-large"?

Before being admitted to the program, applicants may take up to nine credit hours as a student-at-large. Once admitted, approved credits are applied to your degree. Students-at-large are not guaranteed admission to the program and are not given priority registration.

For more information or to apply as a student-at-large, go to the Graduate School website.
