Nursing Education Program

Academics and Curriculum

This 35-credit program features a cohort format, so you can begin courses together with your peers and work closely with each other throughout the program. Your assigned advisor and course faculty will help you to determine the course schedule that best fits your career plans.

You can take one or two courses per semester. The hybrid-online format is designed to meet the needs of your busy schedule with early evening in-person classes and online coursework

During the last semester, you will complete a capstone project, giving you practical, hands-on experience in teaching and learning based on your career interests.
