The graduate programs are designed for the part-time student, leading to a Master of Science in Nursing or Doctor of Nursing Practice. The programs build upon the concepts of a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing and students choose their track of development.
The faculty and staff are well known for their ability to provide personal, individualized attention in a caring environment. Classes are generally held one night per week, with additional work done online.
