Advanced Practice (MSN for Nurse Practitioners)
The Master of Science in Nursing degree with an Advanced Nursing Practice major is available to nationally certified nurse practitioners seeking preparation as a master's prepared advanced practice nurse. This unique program facilitates student integration and synthesis of theory and research as the foundation for advanced nursing practice.
Courses in this major emphasize analysis of theoretical foundations for nursing practice, evidence-based clinical practice protocols, advanced practice professional role attributes and issues, and development of political action skill through knowledge of health policy formulation processes.
Expansion of current clinical practice knowledge is supported through completion of support and elective courses. Current certification as a nurse practitioner by a nationally recognized certifying agency may be substituted for the required clinical practice courses.
Graduates of this major are eligible for recognition as advanced practice nurses.
