MSN-Nursing Education Curriculum

Program Links

Both synchronous (live, real-time) and asynchronous (on your own, not live) formats are used. Most of the course work is asynchronous but live sessions are scheduled in selected online courses. Students should consult with individual course syllabi for specific live session requirements.

There is no board certification with this degree. Students will obtain a MSN but will not be advanced practice.
