The Indiana University East School of Nursing will offer a third concentration for its Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program. The Family Nurse Practitioner concentration will be available beginning the 2015 spring semester.
The graduate program began courses in fall 2011. The program provides registered nurses with advanced practice knowledge, through concentrations in nursing education, nursing administration and now family nurse practitioner.
The School of Nursing is accepting applications for students desiring a graduate degree.
This on-site program meets one Thursday per month from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. providing a consistent schedule to earn a graduate degree in six to seven consecutive semesters.
The deadline to apply is October 1, 2014. Classes begin January 12, 2015. More program information and the online application is available at iue.edu/nursing/msn.
The Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a special report in 2010 regarding the future of nursing. Several recommendations were made for registered nurses to engage in lifelong learning and advance their education.
“The M.S.N. program at IU East is centered on providing nurses with the education to effectively lead and advance health care within their communities,” said Associate Dean for Nursing Graduate Programs Tonya Breymier.
