MSN Program Details
If you've ever considered embarking on an exciting new career as a nurse, the Master of Nursing program at the College of Mount St. Joseph can help you reach this goal in as little as 15 months, including clinical experience. The Mount offers a full-time master of nursing program (MN) for individuals with bachelor's degrees in disciplines other than nursing who are interested in pursuing a nursing career.
What the MN degree program is:
-An accelerated graduate-level program for individuals who have a non-nursing bachelor's degree and would like to become a nurse
-A program that prepares the student at a higher level than a traditional BSN program to enter the profession of nursing
What the MN degree program is not:
-A program that prepares the nurse for advanced practice positions, such as a clinical nurse specialist, or a nurse practitioner
-A Master of Science in Nursing degree
Why an MN?
-The program offers the shortest path for college graduates who want to be nurses.
-The courses will emphasize research, evidence-based practice, clinical reasoning, and theoretical perspectives in nursing and will be taught at a higher level than traditional BSN courses.
-It opens up additional financial aid options.
-Rather than another bachelor's degree, the MN reflects the advanced course work in the field of nursing.
