Messiah College Launches Master of Science in Nursing Degree

Updated on February 14, 2013

Messiah College has expanded its graduate program offerings to include a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), nurse educator track. This 39-credit, online master’s program can be completed in three to six years depending on whether the student chooses to study full- or part-time. Classes begin in July. There are three options within Messiah’s MSN program.

Degree option, MSN, nurse educator track: Designed for nursing graduates who hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and are seeking to earn a MSN degree to prepare for a nurse educator career.

RN-MSN degree option, nurse educator track: Designed for registered nurses who have earned an associate degree or nursing diploma and wish to earn a Master of Science in Nursing to prepare for a career in nursing education.

Non-degree option, Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Nursing Education: launching in fall 2014, this is a non-degree, 15-credit certificate option designed for registered nurses who already hold an advanced degree in nursing and want to advance their careers as a nurse educator.
