Master of Science in Nursing Education
Get ready to inspire the next generation of health care professionals and influence lasting change across a dynamic industry.
Prepare to lead at a hospital or higher learning institution with a Master of Science in Nursing Education. In this program, you’ll learn cutting-edge clinical education theory, curriculum design, teaching strategy and assessment techniques. As with all our online master’s degrees, our Master of Science in Nursing Education includes two face-to-face weekend sessions. You’ll also spend a semester in Applied Practice, changing health outcomes or developing new educational innovations.
Applicants to the Master of Science in Nursing Education program must:
- Hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from an accredited institution
- Have an undergraduate GPA of 2.8 or above
- Have completed an undergraduate course in statistics with a grade of “C” or better. (If you don’t have college credits in statistics, you will be able to enroll in a statistics course at PA College.)
- Have appropriate health care licensure and certificates
- Provide two letters of recommendation and a professional goals statement of no more than 500 words
Interested candidates who have an RN plus a bachelor’s degree in a non-nursing field may apply provisionally and complete the RN to MSN bridge, a three-course sequence offered through the PA College BSN program.
After successfully completing all requirements and admission to the MSN program, the student will progress directly into graduate-level courses.
The BSN is not awarded in the RN to MSN bridge program.
