How earning an MSN from Creighton sets you apart
Nurses who possess a comprehensive set of skills are in high demand because they help to ensure the best outcomes for patients. A Master of Nursing Practice indicates that you’ve not only expanded your knowledge of patient care, but that you’ve also advanced your skills in communication, leadership and critical thinking. Creighton University’s nursing programs are recognized for developing highly skilled, compassionate nurses.
You’ll be able to address, prevent and resolve ethical dilemmas and situations using moral reasoning and values-based dialogue that you strengthened while in the program. These highly sought skills are an essential part of your Creighton education, and they position you for success in a variety of practice environments, including schools, correctional facilities, private companies, home health agencies, mental health settings, long-term care facilities and more.
A degree that meets you where you are in life
Creighton’s MSN is a flexible, online program that’s designed to fit into your busy schedule. You can complete the bulk of your master’s degree in nursing online, although you are required to have some visits to campus. You can be a full-time or part-time student—whatever best fits your life. And, you’re not required to take the GRE or submit a thesis.
Clinical practice is necessary to participate in upper-level clinical courses. However, if you haven’t completed the necessary hours, you can still start your degree. We regularly admit new graduates, who may take core graduate courses prior to completing the 2,000 hours of clinical practice necessary for the upper-level clinical courses.
