Master of Science in Nursing (MSN)
Developing Nurses into Educators
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree at Concordia University Irvine develops professional nurses into educators.
- Advance your Career. 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 nursing program 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, the community at large, and globally.
- Committed to Caring. Making a difference in caring for others is at the heart of our Christian mission and our nursing 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.
- Blended Learning. 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.
- Respected Reputation and Accreditation. Concordia's Nursing program enjoys an excellent reputation, and has nursing graduates at hospitals throughout the region and nation. Concordia University Irvine is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The Department of Nursing is approved by the Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) and accredited by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
