M.S. in Nursing

Monmouth University’s 36-48 credit Master of Science in Nursing will prepare you for an advanced role as an educator, administrator, or practitioner in a wide range of fields. Our program is ideal for current nurses who wish to move ahead in their careers, as well as those who want to enter the dynamic, emerging field of forensic nursing.

The faculty members in the Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies are committed to providing students with more than just the skills of an advanced practice nurse. With small class sizes, one-on-one faculty interaction, and a full-time placement coordinator available to help you identify internship opportunities, Monmouth offers a personalized learning experience designed to position you for success after graduation.

Nursing education is changing to address the increased complexity of patient care, national concerns about the quality of care and patient safety, and shortages of nursing personnel. Monmouth prepares you to adapt to this dynamic health care environment by providing real-world experience in a variety of settings. With over 500+ possible clinical placements throughout the state, plus externships available with our partners Hackensack Meridian Health and Monmouth Medical Center, you have the opportunity to master the field of nursing.

All of our MSN classes are designed to accommodate the working nurse and are offered in the evening, either online or hybrid (alternating weeks on campus).
