The MUW Graduate Nursing Program was established in 1975 to offer a plan of study leading to a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree.
This historic program has maintained full nursing accreditation status since its initial accreditation.
Currently, there are three clinical tracks leading to eligibility to sit for national board certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) or Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGNP).
Find out more about the M.S.N. Program
There are also two post-master certificate options: one for individuals who are not nurse practitioners but hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree (the MSN-RN option), and one for nurse practitioners who hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree but are nationally certified in another specialty (the MSN-NP option).

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is offered specifically for nurse practitioners who wish to increase their knowledge base concerning safe and effective primary patient care for diverse populations.
