University System of Maryland Hagerstown

Nursing (M.S.)

The Master of Science degree program in nursing prepares graduates to assume key roles in the delivery of health care to individuals and families within a community-based nursing practice. All students are required to complete the Graduate Nursing Core.

In addition, each student will select a concentration for further study:

  • Nursing Practice Clinician
  • Nursing Education
  • Clinician - Administrator Transition (CAT)

Students may elect to pursue a graduate project or thesis if either activity is consistent with their professional goals. The master's program is designed for the student who has a bachelor's degree with a major in nursing and is licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN), or eligible, in the state of Maryland. Practicum experiences will be planned with appropriate agencies using a time frame congruent with the goals of the experience and preceptor assignments.
