Missouri State’s nursing program differs from other nursing departments in the United States through its unique emphasis on community care. As a student, you will benefit from this community connection through many of the following:
The Department of Nursing at Missouri State is a part of the College of Health and Human Services. Housed in the Professional Building, the department offers two undergraduate programs, one minor, a master's in nursing with two specialization options, two post-graduate certificates and a doctor of nursing practice with two degree options. Programs in the nursing department are accredited by the Commission on College Nursing Education (CCNE). CCNE accreditation for the DNP programs is planned.
