Department of Graduate Nursing
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 is one clinical track leading to eligibility to sit for national board certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).
Post Graduate APRN Certificate Program M.S.N.
There are two Post Graduate APRN Certificate Programs (RN to FNP and APRN to FNP Track). One for individuals who are not nurse practitioners but hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree (the RN to FNP option), and one for nurse practitioners who hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree but are nationally certified in another specialty (the MSN APRN to FNP 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.
