The UMSL College of Nursing recognizes that graduate education provides nurses with both the skill and knowledge to confidently and successfully take on advanced practice roles in nursing. Upon completion of a program, graduates are eligible to become certified in an area of advanced practice, often as primary care providers.
The MSN programs are based on a set of core courses and additional advanced preparation in an area of clinical practice. The College of Nursing MSN program offers two curricula, preparing graduates as Nurse Educators and Nurse Practitioners. Our post-MSN certificate programs provide preparation for certification in additional advanced practice areas.
The Master of Science in Nursing program at the University of Missouri – St. Louis is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
Master's Program Options
Three-year MSN degree programs prepare nurse practitioners in an area of advanced clinical practice, and nurse educators for classroom and research roles.
