Best Masters in Science of Nursing (MSN) Schools

Best Master of Science in Nursing Schools

Advanced practice nursing has become a lucrative and interesting career option for working RNs who are seeking a more challenging professional opportunity, a position in an administrative or management role, or the chance to work as a nurse teacher in a clinical or classroom setting. The schools listed here all have campus based nursing programs that make the completion of a practicum much easier than with an online MSN program. Generally the clinical areas of specialization for MSN students are confined to campus programs. Some of these schools offer blended programs with a percentage of courses offered online, combined with occasional campus visits for upper level courses. Find Masters in Nursing Online today.
