About the Program

Adult-Oriented Program

The MSN program at King University is a cohort-based program designed for adults who have finished their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The program is designed to relieve the adult learner challenges of balancing personal and professional goals.

Convenient Schedule

Classes meet one day per week, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. By taking classes only one day per week, you can balance the demands of pursuing your degree, working a full-time job, and meeting your family commitments.

Tuition Reimbursement

Many regional healthcare employers have established tuition reimbursement policies with King University. An admissions representative can work with you to determine if you are eligible to participate in this program.

Academic Load

The MSN program includes core courses, advanced specialty core courses, and clinical requirements. Classes meet one day a week for eight hours. Full-time students can complete the MSN degree in five 15-week semesters.

You will enroll in approximately 9 semester hours of coursework each semester. This is an intensive full time program. We recommend you openly discuss this program and its demands with both your family and your employer. Periodic breaks are purposely built in to allow time for reflection and rejuvenation; however, you will need the support and encouragement of family and employers.
