The demand for nursing professionals is increasing with the growing emphasis on preventive care; the rise in chronic conditions such as diabetes and obesity; and the needs of the active baby-boom generation as its members age. The nursing M.S. at UNH will help you advance your career while ensuring the delivery of safe, cost-effective, quality healthcare. We offer three tracks in the Master of Nursing degree program, each preparing you for work that meets your interests and professional goals: clinical nurse leader (CNL), evidence-based nursing (EBN) and family nurse practitioner (FNP).
Our clinical nursing practice tracks are designed to be completed in three to four semesters of full-time study, including one summer. Individual plans of study also are available for those wishing to pursue part-time study. As a graduate of the clinical nurse leader or family nurse practitioner program, you’ll be eligible to sit for the national CNL or FNP exams. The evidence-based nursing track will prepare you for advanced generalist nursing practice, with emphasis on leadership; the cultural, social and political context of health and illness; and quality improvement methodologies.
