The online Second Master’s Degree nursing program (formerly Post-Master’s Certificate) is designed for the Registered Nurse who already possesses a Master’s degree in Nursing but desires additional preparation in another specialty area. The program is structured to meet the needs and schedules of working Registered Nurses through the same distributive learning formats used in the MSN program.
Distinctive features of the Second Master’s Degree program are:
- Instruction by caring faculty, many of whom continue to practice in their areas of specialization
- Emphasis on Jesuit inspired values of knowledge, sensitivity, integrity, excellence, and justice
- Pursuit of humanistic and ethical alternatives to solve contemporary nursing and health care problems
- Critical reasoning vital to professional judgment and ethical decision making
