for many roles within 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 programs. SVSU offers a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) for positions as a family nurse practitioner, educator, administrator, and clinical nurse leader and a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree.
The ADN to BSN Concurrent Program student is one who is enrolled in Nursing (ADN)-Associate in Applied Science (AAS) courses at a partnership community college while taking SVSU RN to BSN courses concurrently. Students will complete their Nursing (ADN)-AAS degree while earning BSN credits, allowing them to complete their BSN from SVSU in additional semesters.

This graduate program has four tracks: Family nurse practitioner (FNP), Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL), Nurse Administrator, and Nurse Educator.
The Post-Graduate Certificate as a Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner is provided in hybrid format for non-clinical courses and is designed for nurses who already have a graduate degree in nursing from an accredited program in another concentration, such as nurse educator, nurse administrator, or Clinical Nurse Leader. This certificate consists of 37 credits taken over 2½ to 3 years. A maximum of 12 equivalent graduate level credits may be transferred.
