The need for nurses with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N. degree) is steadily increasing and the opportunities to practice in a wide range of settings continues to expand. The B.S.N. is often necessary for administrative positions, and it is a prerequisite for admission to graduate nursing education. SVSU also offers a Masters of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) for positions in research, consulting, teaching, or advanced practice nursing.
For undergraduate students, transfer, second degree and high school seniors admitted to SVSU who plan to pursue the BSN program.

This graduate program has four tracks: Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL), Nurse Administrator, and Nurse Educator.
SVSU has been approved by the Higher Learning Commission to offer a DNP program to prepare family nurse practitioners (FNP). Effective Fall 2017, the Post-Masters DNP degree program is available to any nurse who has graduated from an accredited MSN program, regardless of their major.
