MSN Program Details
The Western University Master of Science in Nursing Completion (MSN) program is designed for advanced practice nurses who wish to continue working in their profession, keep family commitments and live in the same community while pursuing a graduate education. This benefit is especially convenient for students living in rural areas, small communities, or on active military duty. This CCNE-accredited program consists of two integrated elements:
-Weekend sessions at the Pomona, California campus twice per semester
Western University's Master of Science Degree in Nursing is designed for the experienced nurse who already has a BSN degree and certification as a family or specialty nurse practitioner. Full-time students can complete the program in one year. Part-time tracks are also available.
To provide maximum scheduling and pacing flexibility while eliminating the need to commute daily to campus, the College of Graduate Nursing uses a combination of self-directed learning activities, collaborative projects, and intensive weekend seminars.

Doctor of Nursing Practice Program Details
The Western University Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is designed for nurses who have completed their master's degree in nursing, either in an advanced practice specialty or in an advanced nursing role, and wish to continue onto doctoral work in nursing practice focusing on the care of vulnerable populations while continuing to practice, keep family commitments and live in their community. The Web-based design of this program is especially convenient for students living in rural areas, small communities, or who are on active military duty. The program consists of three integrated elements:
-Weekend seminars at the Pomona, California campus twice per semester.
-Practice projects, including a culminating practice immersion project, completed in your own community.
Western University's DNP program provides comprehensive preparation for nursing at the highest level of practice. The practice doctorate is firmly established as the terminal degree in nursing practice. The DNP prepares students for the expanding role, functions and needs of future practice. Transforming health care delivery recognizes the critical need for clinicians to design, evaluate, and continuously improve the context in which care is delivered. Nurses prepared at the practice doctoral level with a blend of clinical, organizational, economic, and leadership skills, will be able to significantly impact health care outcomes. DNP graduates will practice in diverse leadership roles in a variety of settings, designing the future health care system, managing population-based and clinical quality initiatives, as executives of healthcare organizations, as directors of clinical programs, and as faculty responsible for nursing educational program delivery and clinical teaching.
