Relevant Specializations for Two Fast-Growing Fields

The online Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Saint Mary offers a choice of two career-building specializations in some of the fastest growing segments of the healthcare industry:

Nurse Educator: An MSN is all but required to teach nursing courses at the undergraduate level or conduct advanced continuing education courses for working nurses. Our online MSN from the University of Saint Mary includes courses that prepare you to continue your education or to teach at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Nurse Administrator: Secure a leadership role in health care. An MSN with a focus on nursing administration is an ideal entry-level degree for nurse administrators. Nurse administrators utilize advanced knowledge of organizational leadership, health policy, and evidence-based practice to foster the delivery of safe, effective, efficient, and quality patient care. An MSN from USM is designed to prepare you for a leadership role in a variety of health care settings.

The University of Saint Mary (USM) is currently seeking initial accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for the graduate online program in nursing. USM is hosting an onsite review March 4 – 6, 2015. This visit does not assure accredited status will be granted. Final CCNE accreditation decisions are retroactive to the first day of the program visit pending a positive outcome.
