Nebraska Wesleyan's Master of Science in Nursing and MSN/Master of Business Administration joint degree are the first programs in school history to be offered exclusively online. It’s an important development for a program designed to serve nursing professionals with especially demanding schedules.

Patients’ needs never clock out. As a result, there is no single time of day or day of the week where every nurse can conveniently step away from their duties to advance their education.

Online courses give nurses the flexibility they need to earn their MSN or MSN/MBA while working any shift and managing their families. Online course delivery also expands the university’s reach, giving nurses wherever they may reside the same access to Nebraska Wesleyan’s outstanding nursing faculty.

"The flexibility of our online format allows you to do the program at your convenience."

“Working nurses who want to return to school need flexibility in their busy lives of work, family and yes, even pandemics,” said Sue Gabriel (MFS ’03, MSN ’05) (EdD, RN, SANE-A), NWU’s MSN program director.

“We’re excited to reach nurses in greater Nebraska and beyond with our MSN online program,” Gabriel said. “They’ll find NWU nursing faculty who are dedicated to maintaining the student connectedness and engagement nurses have always found in our face-to-face classes.”

Nebraska Wesleyan’s bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The MSN is a 40-credit-hour program that allows nurses two course tracks: nurse educator and nurse administrator. The MSN/MBA joint degree is a 55-credit-hour program that combines nursing education with insights on effective business practices.

“The flexibility of our online format allows you to do the program at your convenience. When work or family pressures are less, you can focus fully on the content of your course" said Nursing Department Chair Charlotte Liggett (MSN, MBA). "You will be in a small cohort of nursing professionals that provides a great opportunity to learn from one another.”
