    Master of Science in Nursing, Clinical Nurse Specialist Track

    The purpose of the MSN Clinical Nurse Specialist tracks is to prepare nurses to develop a concentrated area of knowledge and to teach in nursing and health profession programs, in healthcare institutions and agencies, and in the community. The program offers courses that provide for a solid foundation in teaching and learning. Specialty concentrations that we currently offer for this degree include Adult Gerontology, as well as Women's and Children's Health.  The School of Nursing offers full- and part-time enrollment options for these CNS tracks.  The current curriculum appears below, but in the summer of 2014 the adjusted curriculum for the new concentrations will appear.  Your patience is appreciated while these updates are made.
