MSN Programs

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, nursing careers are growing at a fast pace. With the demand for quality healthcare growing, consider taking your nursing career to the next level and earning a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree.  Rowan University is proud to offer three MSN programs: MSN Nurse Practitioner, MSN Nurse Educator, and MSN Nurse Executive.
 
The MSN in Nurse Educator is a timely and essential program for addressing many of today’s pressing needs in the healthcare arena. All nurses are educators, however not all nurses are prepared as educators. The MSN Nurse Educator will provide the healthcare environment with nurses who understand instructional strategies, curriculum design, and evaluation methods. With an MSN as a Nurse Educator, you can remain at bedside, become a staff educator, become a leader in your chosen area of expertise, and/or teach nursing to future nurses. 
 
The MSN Nurse Practitioner, which is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), was established to meet the need for trained professional health care leaders. The MSN Nurse Practitioner prepares Registered Nurses (RN) to sit for the specialty certification exam. The certifying agency determines eligibility for the exam. Students may specialize in Adult Gerontology Acute Care, Family Nurse Practitioner or Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.
 
The MSN Nurse Executive program is created for the nurse executive to manage biomedical and information technology advances, health care reform legislation, escalating costs with diminished reimbursement for services, and a workforce of multiple generations operating in tandem with health care organizations. The essential skill set for nurses leading teams involves innovation and creative approaches that will assist them with the achievement of stability and consistently in an unpredictable environment.
