Nursing (M.S.)

The Master of Science degree program in nursing prepares graduates to assume key roles in the delivery of health care to individuals and families within a community-based nursing practice. All students are required to complete the Graduate Nursing Core.

In addition, each student will select a concentration for further study:

  • Nursing Practice Clinician
  • Nursing Education
  • Clinician - Administrator Transition (CAT)

Students may elect to pursue a graduate project or thesis if either activity is consistent with their professional goals. The master's program is designed for the student who has a bachelor's degree with a major in nursing and is licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN), or eligible, in the state of Maryland. Practicum experiences will be planned with appropriate agencies using a time frame congruent with the goals of the experience and preceptor assignments.
