University of Saint Mary Launches New Online Master of Science in Nursing Built on the Latest AACN Essentials
Date:6/20/2013

Leavenworth, KS (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

The University of Saint Mary is proud to announce the launch of its new, online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program built on the latest Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). The Essentials will eventually become the foundation of most major nursing master’s degree programs nationwide.

The online Master of Science in Nursing program from the University of Saint Mary not only delivers the most up-to-date nursing education today, the curriculum includes courses and features that prepare nurses for future educational opportunities. The online MSN courses at the University of Saint Mary put you a step ahead as our program offers students the opportunity to pursue additional practicum hours if desired.

“The online Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Saint Mary gives nurses the most powerful, career-building education right now and the chance to get one step ahead if you decide to pursue a doctorate-level degree which could unlock even more opportunities in the future,” says Dr. Glenna Mahoney, Nursing Department Chair. “The desperate need for a more highly educated nursing workforce is well known, and there is not a more convenient, more efficient way for nurses to position themselves for high-demand leadership positions than with the online Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Saint Mary.”

The University of Saint Mary’s online MSN includes a choice of two in-demand specializations built for some of the fastest growing segments of the healthcare industry. Online MSN students can choose either a Nurse Educator or Nurse Administrator specialization, both developed according to the current Essentials of Master’s Education in Nursing (2011) from the AACN.

“The AACN reports nearly 1,000 faculty vacancies in nursing schools with bachelor’s and master’s degree programs (1), and a workforce study conducted by the Bernard Hodes Group finds that 75% of current nurse administrators plan to retire by 2020 (2) – this represents unprecedented career opportunities for online Master of Science in Nursing graduates from the University of Saint Mary,” says Dr. Mahoney. “For future nurse leaders and nurse educators, the online MSN from the University of Saint Mary is an excellent way to prepare for future career opportunities today, tomorrow and beyond.”

Applications for admission into the new online Master of Science in Nursing program are being accepted now with online courses set to begin August 2013.
