Thomas Edison State University’s W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing will host a virtual information session highlighting its online nursing degree programs that are designed for RNs who want an alternative to traditional, campus-based instruction.
The virtual session featuring the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) programs will be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m. to noon. Attendees will be able to learn about the university’s nursing degree programs, ask questions and speak with administrators, advisors and staff who will be available to discuss the ways that a nursing degree from TESU can help them change their lives.
The MSN degree requires a minimum of 36 credits consisting of different combinations of courses: core, direct-care core, electives, specialty and Practicum. Two years of nursing experience is recommended, and a BSN degree from an accredited program is required. The DNP is an online doctoral degree program with a specialty area in Systems-Level Leadership that can be completed in 18 months. The program prepares students to lead healthcare organizations. An MSN degree from a regionally accredited higher education institution and a nationally accredited school of nursing (CCNE, CNEA or ACEN) or BSN degree from a nationally accredited school of nursing and master's degree in a related discipline from a regionally accredited higher education institution is required.
