The primary function of The Loewenberg School of Nursing is to offer a program of study designed to prepare students for careers in professional nursing at both the undergraduate and graduate level. As a part of a comprehensive university, the school is dedicated to developing scholarship in nursing and providing services that support the institutional mission. The BSN and MSN programs are accredited through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The undergraduate program is designed to accommodate the needs of high school graduates, transfer students, college graduates, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses who are graduates of diploma or associate degree nursing programs. The school is committed to:

  1. providing a curriculum leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing basic to beginning professional practice and graduate study in nursing;
  2. promoting the intellectual, personal and professional development of students by offering a curriculum that combines a strong liberal education with the professional major;
  3. providing a plan of study with flexible options that are responsive to the individual learner's needs;
  4. encouraging the use of opportunities available in a comprehensive university setting to foster values, attitudes and personal qualities essential to living a fulfilling life and contributing to a diverse society,
  5. producing politically and socially conscious graduates who are competent practitioners in a variety of settings; and
  6. preparing graduates who assume leadership roles to effect change for a healthy society.

The Loewenberg School of Nursing offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science in Nursing with concentrations in:

  • Nursing Administration
  • Nursing Education
  • Family Nurse Practitioner
  • Executive Leadership

Post-master's certificates are also offered in the area of:

  • Nursing Administration
  • Nursing Education
  • Family Nurse Practitioner

Our program offers courses of study designed to prepare students for careers in specialty areas of professional nursing.  It accommodates the needs of BSN graduates and registered nurses who have a BA/BS degree in a major other than nursing.

The program provides maximum flexibility for students who are preparing for practice as nurse educators, nurse administrators, or nurse practitioners as well as for doctoral study in nursing.

Courses are offered both online as well as on campus.

Both part time and full time options are available.  Program length varies depending on selected concentration. A course of study can be completed in 4 semesters with full time study (12-15 credit hours per semester). All part time students must complete all coursework within 5 years of initial admission date.
