As an online Master of Science in Nursing student, you will choose between comprehensive programs focused on nursing leadership, education, and family practice.
Each Utica College master's in nursing program includes a practicum component, so you learn in a real-world clinical setting, and begins with six core courses (comprising 17 credit hours) that build critical skills for advanced practice nursing roles.
Total credits range from 35 to 48, and you will complete your chosen graduate nursing program ready to sit for a career-advancing nursing certification:
- MS in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP): 48 credits
- MS in Nursing Education: 42 credits
- MS in Nursing Leadership: 35 credits
After completing NUR 611 Advanced Health Assessment & Diagnostic Reasoning, and prior to commencing the practicum, students in the FNP program will be required to attend a three-day (Friday–Sunday) in-person immersion experience on the Utica College campus.
