Students complete the MSN core and concentration courses in two years, taking two courses per semester, including two courses in the summer semester.  Although students take two courses every semester, students are only on campus one night per week from 5-9pm. 

All courses are delivered through a blended learning model -- a combination of online and face-to-face meetings. The face-to-face meetings for the Educator Track meet on Tuesdays for nurse educator students entering the program in even years and Wednesdays for nurse educator students entering the program in odd years.   The face-to-face meetings for  the Leadership Track meet on Wednesday nights for nursing leadership students entering the program in even years and Tuesdays for nursing leadership students entering the program in odd years.
