Master of Nursing
Graceland offers online Master's nursing programs with specialty tracks in either family nurse practitioner or nurse educator. Our Master of Science in Nursing online program is designed to provide working R.N.s the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree through the completion of a combination of online cohort courses, on-campus focus sessions and faculty and preceptor-guided practicum experiences in the student's local community.
Over the course of our Master of Nursing programs online, students are required to attend two focus sessions at Graceland University's School of Nursing located in Independence, Missouri. The first focus session (program orientation) is scheduled in the first few weeks of the first trimester. The second focus session is scheduled in conjunction with the Advanced Health Assessment & Advanced Practice Procedure Laboratory courses. The School of Nursing offers full-time & part-time completion plan options:
- Full-time Option (2-3 courses/trimester) is recommended for students with flexible part-time or full-time employment and/or minimal to moderate personal and family obligations
- Part-time Option (1-2 courses/trimester) is recommended for students with demanding part-time or full-time employment and/or moderate to high personal and family obligations
