Combined BS/MS Program
The Combined BS/MS program is an accelerated combined-degree (BS/MS) program for non-nurse college graduates. The program is designed to prepare the student for a career as an Advanced Practice Nurse. Academic studies are closely integrated with clinical experience.
There are two components: pre-licensure study which provides students with knowledge of nursing science and nursing practice and specialty study which focuses on an advanced practice role in professional nursing.

Master's Programs Master's Programs
The Master's Program advances nursing competence by extending and deepening knowledge within a specific clinical specialty.

Doctor of Nursing Practice Program
The Doctor of Nursing Practice program prepares nurses with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary for fully accountable comprehensive care with patients across sites and over time. With the increasing scope of clinical scholarship in nursing and the growth of scientific knowledge in the discipline, doctoral level education is required for independent practice.

PhD Student PhD Program
The PhD program is a research-intensive curriculum that prepares nurse scholars to conduct research independently and as part of interdisciplinary teams. The program provides students with an understanding of the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of nursing science, and a strong foundation in research methods (design, statistics, measurement) for clinical, translational and health services research.

Non-Degree Programs
The Non-Degree program is for students who already have completed an accredited masters or doctoral degree as an advanced practice nurse (NP) and is based upon existing subspecialties.
