School of Nursing and Health Studies Opens Additional Master’s Programs

The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies is opening additional master’s programs to help nurses with bachelor’s degrees earn higher-level degrees, and qualify for advanced nurse practitioner careers, at a faster rate.

There is a high demand among nurses with Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) degrees to earn graduate-level degrees allowing them to work as entry-level nurse practitioners. These nurses can then proceed to their doctoral degree of choice.

“By offering these additional programs we decrease the entrance to practice by approximately a year and a half,” said David LaFevers, interim director of the UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program. “Not only is opening these programs satisfying a workforce demand, it’s serving the market needs of students and also increasing access to care more rapidly for consumers and patients.”


Congratulations to our outstanding graduates in May 2016!
