Master of Science
You can move into the future with a master's degree from CSU, Chico.
The master's degree program at California State University, Chico has been in existence since 1970 and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Our graduates currently function in influential health advisory positions at the state level, as nursing faculty in programs throughout California, as administrators in many types of health organizations, and as expert clinicians and managers.
The CSU, Chico School of Nursing offers a master's program that is geared to meet the needs of nurses in a rural area. We provide a strong program that enables students to gain advanced knowledge and skills in the areas of adult health and the educator role. The clinical core courses provide a broad foundation in aspects of adult health from a biophysical and psycho-social/spiritual perspective, and we encourage and facilitate the development of each student's own area of clinical interest within the focus of the program. In addition, courses in research, nursing theory, and teaching/learning add depth to the core foundation. The course in the dynamics of the advanced nursing role helps with career planning and the transition into the expanded roles opened up by a master's degree in nursing.
Horray! The School of Nursing is excited to announce that we are now offering TWO options for the MSN program. We will continue with the option in Nurse Education and are adding an option in NursingLeadership. We are also moving to an annual admissions cycle, so we are admitting now for fall 2013. If you are considering continuing you education, we are accepting applications now until May 29, 2013.
