Xavier Makes Leaders.

The RN to MSN program is designed for experienced registered nurses without a bachelor's degree in any field who wish to obtain a high quality MSN degree and who demonstrate leadership potential, motivation, and specific career goals. This program can be completed within two to three years, and the 8-week course structure is designed to allow flexibility for life events and to allow students to attend part-time or full-time.

 

Ranked in the top 100 nursing schools in the country by the U.S. News and World Report, our School of Nursing has been awarded over seven million dollars in grants to support our strong quality programs and excellence in teaching.

This perspective infuses our entire program, and we are dedicated to helping our graduates fulfill their individual goals.

Classes are filling quickly for our next start, so call us now at (855) 815-3056  for more information. 

Outcomes

The Preparation You Need to Advance.

Earning an advanced nursing degree is more than an academic achievement -- it's a pathway for career advancement into professional leadership roles that encompass educational, consultative and managerial functions. Our graduates will have the tools they need to design and establish delivery services in response to health care policy changes.


The MSN courses include theoretical and practical knowledge, which serve as the foundation for advanced nursing education in a variety of roles. Core courses focus on three major themes which are consistent with the philosophy for the graduate program:


  1. Critical systematic inquiry
  2. Professional and personal development
  3. Management of information and resources in a rapidly changing health care environment


Classes are taught by faculty who are also practitioners and are recognized for teaching excellence. Our students are treated as individuals with unique goals, expertise and needs, and are encouraged to approach health care with a strong ethical foundation.
