New Classes Starting for 2014 in Bethany & Tulsa
One night a week format makes advancing your degree doable for the working adult!
The Master of Science with major in Nursing Education or Nursing Leadership is designed for baccalaureate-educated registered nurses who want to increase their effectiveness as nurses. The program consists of an accelerated modular Professional Study program, with two tracks: nursing education and nursing leadership. Each track, in the sequential curriculum, consists of 18 credits of CORE content, followed by 15 credits of specialty courses. At the end of the program, there is a six-credit capstone course, culminating in a thesis or project.
Each course consists of six weeks of intensive study. Courses include classroom sessions and group and individual projects. During the six-credit capstone course, learners receive extensive support in the completion of research study culminating in the writing of a thesis.
An alternate option is now available for registered nurses with bachelor's degrees in fields other than nursing. Applicants meet with a graduate nursing coordinator to develop individualized plans for completing entrance requirements through a portfolio process.
Students who complete the Master of Science with major in Nursing Education or Nursing Leadership may return and complete the four specialty courses for the alternate track. Upon completion of the four courses, the student will receive a certificate for the second track.
