The Department of Advanced Nursing Studies faculty believe nursing education is both theoretical and experiential, dealing with both health and illness management. Further it is a dynamic and interactive process of study and practice. Graduate programs offered by the department include the Master of Science in Nursing, Post-Master’s of Science in Nursing certificate, Nurse Practitioner Advancement, and Doctor of Nursing Practice.
Students and faculty are both essential to this interactive process; both contributing and learning from each other in an environment of mutual respect. Nursing education is based on the development of cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains.
Given this we believe the goals of education should be the development of intellectual inquisitiveness, analytical thinking, and critical judgment. This is the framework for effective communication, competent delivery of care, the promotion and sharing of research, professional accountability, leadership and responsibility.
The MSN, NP Advancement and Post-Master’s certificate programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
