The mission of the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Thomas University is to prepare nurses who are reflective and critical practitioners of the art and science of nursing; are caring, culturally competent, and politically aware; and who practice within a legal and ethical framework in the advanced roles of leader, advocate, educator, and researcher. The graduate will be an effective communicator, a competent scholar, and a professional role model. Graduates of the MSN program will be equipped with the knowledge, competencies, and values to assume roles as nursing leaders or educators in current and future health care or academic settings.
The MSN program is designed to allow students to maintain an active nursing practice while attending classes on campus one half-day per month. Courses are offered through a “hybrid” learning model, using a combination of a traditional classroom environment and online instruction. In addition, class sizes are intentionally small to allow for dynamic interaction between students and faculty. Internship hours are arranged at times and locations convenient to students and preceptors.
