Masters Entry Program

Our Master’s Entry Program in Nursing (MEPN) helps non-nursing students pursue their dream careers. It’s a convenient choice for busy adults who would like to change professions and seek an advanced nursing degree. Our program is presented in a blended format, allowing you to complete traditional and distance education courses. We currently offer online MEPN courses to support students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a pre-licensure Registered Nursing program, our MEPN accepts applicants who have already completed the required undergraduate General Education in a non-nursing bachelor’s program. This means that you can enroll in the program even if you do not have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree.
In as little as 22 months, you can receive a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree. If you pass the NCLEX-RN license exam, you will be prepared to assume advanced clinical roles in hospitals, community health clinics, and state, federal, and global institutions. You will also be qualified to take the Clinical Nurse Leader Exam after completing the required practice hours.
MSN Career Overview

In some cases, it might be a prerequisite for doctorate-level nursing education. Additionally, MSN degrees can be used to help individuals become advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). These are just some of the professions that fall under the APRN umbrella: nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, nurse anesthetist, and nurse midwife.
