Department of Nursing Graduate Programs

Miami now offers an opportunity for you to advance your nursing career with Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degrees. The MSN program's first cohort started in the fall of 2022. The DNP degree will begin in the fall of 2024. Seamless progression allows students to earn an MSN, begin their career in advanced practice, and continue to work towards their terminal DNP degree.

Master of Science in Nursing

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program offers two tracks of study, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Nurse Executive Leadership, with respective designation on transcripts. Courses will be delivered in an online format; however, each track will have at least one on-campus course requirement lasting 2-3 days mid-program.
