We are currently not admitting students to the Master of Science in Nursing and the
Nursing Education Post-Baccalaureate Certificate.
北京快3官方网址Across the country, a shortage of nurses and nursing faculty members who are qualified
to teach the next generation of nursing leaders could cripple our health care system
in the coming decades. As a practicing nurse or educator, you can make a difference
in the lives of others whether you are managing a hospital floor or leading a classroom.
If you hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing, are licensed as a registered nurse or
are eligible for licensing in the state of Maryland, the master’s degree in nursing
program can broaden your personal and professional options. Courses are offered on
weekday evenings to give you the flexibility you need to balance family, work, and
a graduate program. All courses are offered in a hybrid model with on-site classroom
instruction one week followed by an online assignment the next week. View and in the Graduate Catalog.
北京快3官方网址Unlike other master’s programs that prepare nurse practitioners to assume many of
the roles traditionally performed by medical doctors or clinical nurse specialists,
population-based nurses help patients navigate the complexities of the health care
system. They serve as case managers, coordinating patient care and medications from
different specialists. Case managers see the whole picture rather than the limited
perspective of a specialty area. Choose from two concentrations:
- Nursing education prepares you for the classroom. The Nursing Education Concentration is for students
who plan to teach in a nursing school or work in staff development or education in
a health care agency. View the video to learn more.
Maryland’s Only Graduate Nursing Cohort Program
The master’s in nursing program is now offering a cohort program for full-time students
to take classes together one day each week — the only nursing graduate program in
Maryland organized as a full-time cohort. The program makes it easier to work around
your academic demands by developing your work schedule in advance. In addition, the
program allows you to build supportive relationships and networks to help you navigate
the university and graduate in a timely manner.
