The M.S. with a Nursing major is designed for baccalaureate-educated registered nurses who want to increase their effectiveness as nurses. The program offers two tracks: Nursing Education and Nursing Leadership. Each track, in the sequential curriculum, consists of 24 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 and thesis presentation. A new entry option provides for registered nurses, with non-nursing bachelor’s degrees, to be admitted through an individualized portfolio process.

In this accelerated modular program, classes meet just 1 night a week. Courses consist of 6 weeks of intensive study and include activities such as group and individual projects, scholarly papers, and presentations. The six-credit hour capstone course is developed based on the learner's individual professional goals. Enrollment is in the total program, rather than in individual courses.
