The MSUM MS with major in Nursing curriculum includes graduate core courses, specialty track advanced practice courses, other nursing and support courses and clinical practica. Students collaborate with their advisors to select practica that fit their particular areas or populations of interest. Clinical practica may take place in the students' home area if appropriate. Many state Boards of Nursing allow nursing graduate courses to count toward required annual nursing CEUs.
Nursing professionals can enjoy many benefits by dual enrolling in both the MS in Nursing with Nursing major and the Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA).
Both degrees incorporate robust graduate courses that are shared between the two programs to develop you as an organizational leader within any healthcare environment. Dual degrees give you the added credentials to 1) increase your knowledge, 2) expand your marketability and 3) grow your professional network. Talk to your advisor to see how many additional credits you might need to complete a second master’s degree.
