After careful consideration, Metropolitan State University School of Nursing has elected to suspend admission to the MSN program for both the Nurse Educator and Leadership/Management Program for admission for fall semester 2014. This suspension includes the post-master���s certificate options. We remain committed to our students currently enrolled. Please check back for future updates regarding these programs.
Nursing Specialty Certificates
Leadership/Management and Nurse-Educator Post-Graduate Certificates
A Post-Graduate Certificate option is offered on a space available basis for RNs who hold a master's or DNP degree in nursing and would like to expand their practice to include Nurse Leadership/Management or Nurse Educator preparation. A minimum of 9 credits in an individually designed program of study is required for Leadership/Management and 15 graduate credits are required for the Nurse Educator certificate program.
The program of study is individually designed with a faculty advisor based on curricular and certification requirements.
