Nursing (RN-BSN) Learning Opportunities

  • MSUM’s curriculum strategically builds on the associate’s nursing education and your current RN practice base. You will receive the most current and essential curricula for baccalaureate-level nursing education and practice, with a focus on emerging healthcare issues/trends, evidence-based practice, population-focused practice, leadership, and systems-thinking for impacting quality and safety outcomes in healthcare.

  • MSUM strives to give you important, real-world application of critical concepts in your baccalaureate education. Four clinical experiences will be completed in your home area, in collaboration with your faculty mentor and within the scope of RN practice. They include:

    • Family Health – working with a local family to promote overall health
    • Gerontological Nursing – working with a community elder to promote overall health
    • Public Health – reviewing the breadth of services and developing a health promotion action with a group
    • Professional Pathways – developing a nursing quality improvement project

    The Nursing faculty and student are embarking on an international study experience to London in May 2017. Additional opportunities are being explored for the future.

    MSUM is active in Sigma Theta Tau International, the honor society of nursing. The organization supports nurses throughout their careers with continuing education, nursing publications, nursing research and scholarship opportunities. If you meet the high criteria for membership, you will be invited to join after completing at least half of the coursework.

    Membership supports your professional development:

    • Promoting scholarship
    • Mentoring leadership
    • Encouraging creativity
    • Demonstrating commitment to nursing
    • Providing access to resources
    • Creating opportunities to interact with other colleagues

    MSUM is a part of the Xi Kappa - Chapter at Large of Sigma Theta Tau International (MSUM, Concordia College, Jamestown College, North Dakota State University).
