Master of Science in Nursing

There are several key points you should know about our MSN program. There are three concentrations: nursing education, nursing informatics, and nursing administration. The program focuses on these concentrations to meet the complex needs of the health care delivery system that is currently experiencing a nurse educator shortage, as well as a growing need for nurses who are leaders in informatics and administration.

One of the key aspects of the program is that it is flexible. Students can choose to take one to four courses at a time. There is also the flexibility of increasing or decreasing one’s course load, depending on personal and professional circumstances.

Secondly, the program is adult student-oriented and user-friendly. All courses are delivered fully online. The online format provides students the opportunity to interact with peers from inside and outside the state, creating a diverse learning community. With 24 hour/7 day a week access, students can participate in classes at times that are compatible with their work and family schedules.

All of these attributes have contributed to the Ferris MSN program consistently being highly ranked as an online graduate program by U.S. News and World Report. More recently, ranked the FSU MSN program in the top 10 in the nation for affordability. We are proud of these distinctions as it recognizes the value of this graduate degree program.
