MSN Program Details
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Midwestern State University is a professional program of study offered in concert with the mission and purpose of the University, building upon the foundation of undergraduate nursing education. There is also an RN to MSN Program for nurses who have graduated from hospital based programs or 2 year associate degree programs, as well as a Post-Masters Certification Program. The Masters programs focus on the development of refined analytical skills, broad-based perspectives, enhanced abilities to articulate viewpoints and positions, as well as the ability to integrate theory with practice and to utilize research findings in advanced practice roles. MSU's MSN program offers three options: Nurse Educator, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. The master's programs are accredited by the commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
The three tracks available are:
Nurse Educator: Provides the student with the knowledge and expertise to teach in any level of nursing program, i.e. LVN, ADN, BSN, and MSN. In addition, students are prepared to teach in staff development or patient education roles.
Family Nurse Practitioner: Prepares the student for practice as a Family Practitioner, meeting the requirements for advanced practice nursing established by the Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas. Graduates are eligible for national certification examinations.
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner: Prepares the student for practice as a Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, meeting the requirements for advanced practice nursing established by the Texas Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible for national certification examinations.
