The Master of Science in Nursing program at Ferris State University is designed to meet the needs of BSN nurses who want to further their educational growth and development in an accessible fully online program that accommodates the busy lives of working adults.

Building upon your BSN degree this degree provides you with three specialty concentrations, all of which support career mobility options that are in high demand within the discipline of nursing. These advanced role options include nursing education, nursing administration, and nursing informatics.

The program is comprised of three components: a basic set of nursing core courses, a specialized advanced leadership role concentration and a practicum and scholarly project. All this will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed for a variety of advanced specialty roles.

The MSN program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), formerly the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC).
