Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) Online Curriculum

Advance your nursing career in a rapidly growing health care industry with Benedictine University.

Our CCNE-accredited curriculum starts with 15 credits of foundation courses covering evidence-based nursing practice, health promotion, ethical and cultural competence, quality and safety, and health care policy and advocacy. From there, choose to complete the Nurse Educator Concentration and become a knowledge leader in your organization (24 credits) or the Nurse Executive Leader Concentration and become an operational leader (21 credits).

In either concentration, your final two courses will focus solely on an on-ground practicum where you'll apply your learning to attain master's level competency in a real clinical setting. Many students complete the practicum where they work, though another clinical site may be selected.
