Advanced practice nursing roles are a key component to providing quality healthcare. At Bowie State, our expert faculty prepare graduate students to meet those needs with a curriculum focused on health policy development, research, health promotion, management and care of diverse and vulnerable populations. Housed in the award-winning Center for Natural Sciences, Mathematics & Nursing, the MSN program offers two tracks: Family Nurse Practitioner and Nurse Educator. Both options offer a clear path to enhance and enrich your nursing career.

The Master of Science in Nursing program prepares professional nurses for advanced practice roles and for doctoral study. Students will:

  • Translate current research evidence to improve policies, procedures and practices in clinical and educational settings
  • Employ communication technologies and information systems to improve outcomes in nursing education and in practice settings
  • Demonstrate organizational and systems leadership in nursing education and in clinical practice to improve the quality of care to patients.
  • Demonstrate high-quality nursing care and educational standards in the design and delivery of healthcare services to vulnerable and underserved populations.
  • Incorporate legal and ethical principles in clinical practice and nursing education.
