Department of Nursing

The need for nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and advanced practice degrees is steadily increasing and the opportunities to practice in a wide range of settings continues to expand. The BSN is often necessary for administrative positions, and it is a prerequisite for admission to graduate nursing education. SVSU offers a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) for positions in education, administration, and clinical nurse leadership and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) to prepare family nurse practitioners.
