Shape the Future of Modern Healthcare.

Some nurses are more than just caretakers. They’re innovators. Collaborators. Decision makers. They aspire to play their own important role in how hospitals are run – and how healthcare is delivered to millions across the country.


A master of science degree in nursing is for nurses who want to get ahead in their careers. Who want to leverage technology and management skills to shape how hospitals work. Who want to become effective partners with physicians and healthcare advocates. Who want to be not just healthcare practitioners – but healthcare leaders.


We’re awarding up to ten $5,000 scholarships to students enrolling in the MSN program in August or October 2017. We will offer the scholarship to students applying for the program to start in the second mini session. The scholarship will provide a $1,000 tuition credit per term for five terms.
