Graduate Nursing Program Classes

Master's in nursing courses

The graduate Nursing curriculum is designed to take RNs with a bachelor's degree to the next level of their careers. The MSN program curriculum is made up of 30 credits and can be completed in as few as 20 months part-time.

You don't have to wait for the MSN classes you need.

To make it even easier for working nurses, the MSN program classes are all available online, so you don't have to worry about crawling into class after a long shift — you can complete your work on your schedule.

There are financial aid opportunities available.

You may still be paying off student loans from your bachelor's degree, but you don't have to stress about tuition costs. We have a dedicated team of financial aid advisors who are trained to work with nurses seeking their MSN degrees. These advisors know exactly how to find financial aid opportunities to make your MSN degree a reality and understand what it's like for a working nurse trying to balance your priorities and resources. You may be eligible for grants and scholarships to help offset the cost of your MSN degree tuition.
