Careers and Outcomes

Preparing for success

We help students achieve success long before they graduate. Employers hire Missouri State graduates for their exceptional combination of knowledge and skills acquired in acute and community clinical settings throughout the program.

Nursing careers

A variety of nursing specialties are available to you after graduation from the four-year BSN program. We are excited to have a 100 percent job placement rate within one month of graduation. Many of our students receive employment offers before graduation. Our graduates have jobs in a variety of environments including:

  • Acute care (hospital or clinics)
  • Community organizations
  • Travel nurses
  • Military nurses
  • School nurses

To become a registered nurse, you must take the NCLEX-RN exam after graduation from the program. Graduates of Missouri State’s program had a first-time pass rate of 100 percent in 2016.

Taking a nursing career to the next level

Our graduate programs for registered nurses will expand your clinical leadership and management ability. Programs for advanced roles are flexible and affordable, and online completion is available in several of the programs.
