Program Description

The Master's of Science in Nursing curriculum is designed to prepare students as practitioners in selected specialties and in evidence-based practice so they may assume roles as clinician-scholars. Nurses in advanced practice are professionals committed to the delivery and study of high-quality clinical service. The program of study in the School is viewed as preparation for a variety of leadership roles to help shape the health care system of the future. YSN admits both registered nurses who have a baccalaureate degree and college graduates with no previous nursing education. The curriculum places emphasis upon clinical competence and nursing scholarship. Each student is educated to function in an expanded role in the specialty area of his or her choice. Employers recognize the superior preparation YSN graduates receive and actively seek to recruit them.
