About the MSN

The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program at Saint Elizabeth University is a 36-credit, cohort-based program which was developed in response to the growing need for nurses with advanced degrees who can assume leadership positions in education and practice. The program offers two options – Nursing Education and Nursing Leadership. The program provides nurses with the opportunity to develop the skills, confidence and knowledge necessary to practice as:

  • Faculty in schools and colleges of nursing.
  • Educators in health care organizations.
  • Patient educators or community educators.
  • Nurse leaders in health care organizations.
  • Foundation for further educational advancement through nurse practitioner certification or doctoral education.

The MSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc., 3390 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 1400 | Atlanta, GA 30326. (404) 975-5000
