M.S. with a Major in Nursing

St. Joseph’s is pleased to announce that it was the recipient of a grant to support graduate education in nursing through the Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP).

As an M.S. with a major in Nursing student at St. Joseph’s College, you’ll learn from highly credentialed faculty while becoming specialized in one of two concentrations: clinical nurse specialist in adult health or nursing education.

In just seven semesters, our graduates are ready to assume teaching positions or become clinical nurse specialists. The program is designed for registered nurses with a baccalaureate degree in nursing and builds on the knowledge base and practical experience that prepares the student for advanced professional practices. The M.S. with a major in Nursing is accredited by Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN).

The clinical nurse specialist in adult health concentration prepares students for the multi-faceted role of the CNS in a variety of health care settings. The nurse education concentration prepares students for educator positions in either academic or service settings or in patient education.

Admissions to the Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialist concentration have been suspended as of fall 2013. The Nursing Department is revising the curriculum to align with a national mandate requiring all adult health advanced practice programs to be re-registered as Adult Gerontology.

Current students in the Adult health Clinical Nurse Specialist program must complete program requirements by spring 2015. All graduates who intend to seek certification as an Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialist must register for the certification exam no later than December 2014 and complete the process by December 2015.
