Program Description

The Graduate Entry Prespecialty in Nursing program is the first of a three-year, full-time course of study that combines preparation in basic nursing with advanced preparation in a clinical specialty and masters degree in nursing. Recognizing that students arrive to the GEPN program with vast experiences and knowledge outside of nursing, the curriculum balances both the arts and the sciences in the curriculum and clinical components. Students are offered experiences in the acute-care hospital units and community settings to achieve YSN's overall mission of better health for all people. Interprofessional relationships with the Yale School of Medicine and the Yale Physician Associate program offer students opportunities to learn with their colleagues in a truly collaborative environment. We also use resources such as the Yale Center for British Art and the Yale School of Music to enhance observational and auscultative abilities. Upon completion of the prespecialty year, students continue on with their graduate studies, which includes theory, practice, and research. Students are admitted into their designated specialty when accepted into the program. The Certificate in Nursing and a license to practice nursing in Connecticut are the two prerequisites required for the GEPN student to continue with their graduate work to earn their MSN degree.
