Masters of Science in Nursing
The Master of Science in Nursing Program at Northern Kentucky University was established in 1992. In 1994, an online format was developed in response to the needs of the working nurse. Our program has since developed and enjoys an outstanding relationship in our partnerships with the surrounding University and Health Care Community.
Our MSN Program currently offers seven (7) different tracks ranging from Primary Care to Nursing Informatics. They range between 38 and 49 credit hours, depending on the track and which research option is chosen.
We offer both Part and Full Time Sequencing for our students. The Part Time Sequence takes an estimated three years to complete (9 to 10 semesters including the Summer). The Full Time Sequence can be completed in two full calendar years (Summer included).
Please note that not all of our programs admit year round. The Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Nursing Informatics Program only admit to each Fall Semester.
Nurse Practitioner students are eligible to take either the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) certification exams. Our graduates enjoy a 98% certification pass rate.
