Salve Regina graduate nursing programs now offered online
Salve Regina’s master of science in nursing (MSN) and doctor of nursing practice (DNP) graduate degree programs will be delivered online beginning in September 2020. The change in modality comes at a critical time in health care, which is experiencing a growing demand for online programs that allow nurses to continue their education while also managing rapidly changing situations at work and at home.
“Even before our new reality set in, students were asking for more flexible learning options,” says Dr. Sharon Stager, graduate program director for nursing at Salve Regina. “So we took the next step with our existing hybrid programs and moved to a robust, online experience. With our new blend of synchronous and asynchronous learning, students will still experience the personal touch that comes from interacting with faculty in real time, combined with the convenience of fitting coursework into their busy schedules.”
Attend virtual information session on online nursing programs
A virtual information session introducing the online MSN and DNP programs will be held Tuesday, June 23 at 4 p.m. Register for the event at salve.edu/grad-infosession.
In the informational session, Dr. Tobias Stapleton, dean of graduate studies and continuing education, will give an overview of the programs, and Dr. Stager will introduce the curriculum and answer questions from attendees.
“Salve Regina has an established reputation for delivering transformative academic experiences online,” says Dr. Stapleton. “We now offer two fully online doctoral programs — the DNP and the Ph.D. in International Relations — in addition to six online master’s programs. We look forward to introducing the online nursing programs during the information session on June 23.”
Salve Regina’s nursing programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and the University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). The fall application deadline for graduate nursing programs is August 1.
In addition to the graduate degrees, Salve Regina’s nursing department also offers the bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) and a degree completion track for registered nurses (RN-BSN).
