Western Connecticut State University

The Master of Science (MS) in Nursing program prepares nurses for leadership positions in the nursing practice. The program requires completion of 41 to 47 credits of specialized professional course work. Students may prepare for either the Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, or Acute Care Nurse Practitioner role. All students complete a sequence of clinical and role component courses, including a minimum of 500 hours of clinical practicum experiences under the guidance of a preceptor, and an evidence-based research project. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the certification examination for their chosen role.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree is designed for advanced practice nurses who wish to seek a terminal degree in nursing practice that is not research- or education-focused. This program will prepare the DNP graduate in both quantitative and qualitative research, evidence-based practice, foundations of policy and practice design, and implementation of practice initiatives that can advance translational healthcare practices and services to significantly impact the delivery of healthcare services within communities. The DNP focuses on understanding research and applying it to practice. Rather than completing a dissertation, DNP students typically complete a DNP project that evaluates a health care program or identifies clinical strategies for improving quality control and patient care.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Fall 2023 semester.
