BSN Program Details

The first step in your nursing career is earning your Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.). The Wayne State University College of Nursing has a long record of successfully preparing students to begin practicing upon graduation. Graduates average a 96.7-percent first-time passing rate of the state licensure exam (NCLEX-R.N), which is 11-percent higher than the national average and 10-percent higher than the Michigan average.

MSN Program Details

The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program is designed to prepare nurses for advanced nursing practice either as Nurse Practitioners (NP) or as Certified Nurse Specialists (CNS) in the care of culturally diverse individuals, families, groups, and communities within a variety of health-care settings. Individuals who have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree and who are licensed registered nurses may apply for admission. State of Michigan licensure is required before individuals can start clinical course work. A minimum 3.0 grade point average from the B.S.N. degree is required for regular admission consideration and a minimum 2.8 grade point average is required for qualified admission consideration. The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is no longer required for admission to the M.S.N. program.

Candidates for the M.S.N. degree must complete thirty-seven to forty-seven credits of study in which at least twenty-four credits must be completed at Wayne State University. All course work must be completed in accordance with the academic procedures of the College of Nursing and the Wayne State University Graduate School governing graduate scholarship and degrees. Students have six years to complete degree requirements. The six-year time limit begins the semester in which the student is admitted to the program.

All M.S.N. students must elect a series of courses that will prepare him/her to be competent in the utilization of research findings. To develop these skills, the student completes courses in inferential statistics and research methods in nursing before conducting a study that includes the scientific analysis of data.

Concentrations currently available to satisfy all degree requirements include Adult Acute & Critical Care Nursing, Adult Primary Care Nursing, Gerontological Nursing, Women’s Health Nursing, Nurse-Midwifery, Pediatric Nursing, Neonatal Nursing, Community Health Nursing and Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing.

Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details

Established in 2008, the Doctorate of Nursing practice (DNP) is a program designed to prepare the nurse at an advanced level of nursing science. The program emphasizes the development of the student’s capacity to impact the clinical setting as leaders and educators and to utilize clinical research to improve and transform health care. This program is based on the understanding that nursing provides services which includes the direct care of individual clients, management of care for populations, administration of nursing systems, and development and implementation of health policy. Advanced practice nurses with practice doctorates will address significant practice issues in a scholarly way, adopt broad system perspectives for health promotion and risk reduction, and act as agents of change that transform client/community care, participate in the on-going evaluation of health care outcomes, and assist in the translation of research that leads to positive nursing practice changes.

The purposes of the Doctor of Nursing Practice program are:

-To prepare clinically focused advanced practice nurses who are capable of translating knowledge into the clinical setting that contributes to the positive development of individuals, families, communities, society and the discipline of nursing.
-To prepare clinically focused advanced practice nurses who will be capable of addressing the multiple weaknesses in the current health care systems through roles as leaders, educators and agents of change.
-To prepare leaders for the discipline and profession of nursing that will have the skills to address issues of health disparities in an urban environment.
