The MSN program student learning outcomes are congruent with the mission of the University, which is to prepare students for rewarding careers through quality educational programs that meet the changing needs of employers and the community.

Our MSN program prepares students to provide humanistic, collaborative care as a leader in an advanced nursing practice which addresses sociocultural, spiritual, ethnic, and gender diversity within an increasingly global, multicultural society. Our graduates will be prepared to enter the world of nursing practice with extensive knowledge of how to work in our diverse community.
