Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)
The Master of Science in Nursing degree at Concordia University Irvine develops professional nurses into educators. The MSN fulfills the Department of Nursing's mission to educate a culturally and academically diverse student population to become competent, compassionate, and holistic nursing professionals who uphold Christian values in their service to individuals, families and communities.
Given the national shortage of qualified nursing educators in the classroom and at the bedside, as well as the fact that many nursing educators will soon be retiring, now is the perfect time for you to earn your advanced degree in nursing. Concordia's MSN will equip you as a professional nurse educator to teach undergraduate nursing students in four specialty areas and provide clinical teaching experiences in the Mental Health, Medical-Surgical, Pediatrics and Maternal Newborn content areas. You will then be able to manage these units in acute care health systems and the community at large and globally.
Concordia's Master of Science in Nursing combines quality outcomes for both the student and patient with excellent clinical practice to learn the art and science of nursing. Making a difference in caring for others is at the heart of the Department of Nursing's philosophy. You will learn from faculty who understand and are passionate about the emotional connection with the heart, mind, spirit, and practice of teaching nursing for future generations.
To accommodate working nurses, the MSN degree can be completed as either full-time or part-time study. Online instruction is combined with classroom instruction in a hybrid format, in which students meet at our campus in Irvine, CA, during the first and last weeks of the 8-week terms. Depending on your pace of study, you can complete your master's degree in 15-20 months.
