King University News :: Give Yourself the Gift of an Education Apply Now for Master’s Program in Nursing

BRISTOL, Tenn., December 4, 2014 – This Christmas season, if you are a Registered Nurse who already has a bachelor’s degree, give yourself a gift of knowledge and expanded career options by applying early for the fall 2015 Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at King University.

Whether it is a personal goal, a step toward furthering one’s career or a change in careers, King’s Graduate Professional Studies (GPS) MSN degree program is intended to reduce the challenges adult learners face in balancing personal and professional goals.

The MSN program at King offers an opportunity to assume an advanced role in one's professional nursing career, and in the preferred area of practice specialty- as a nurse practitioner, a nurse educator or nurse administrator,” says Dr. Rhonda Morgan, DNP, MSN, RN, CCNS, CEN, CNRN, APN, associate dean for Graduate Studies Nursing and associate professor for the King University School of Nursing.

King's MSN program options are set at an accelerated pace and may be completed in 20-24 months. MSN classes for fall 2015 are available at the Knoxville and Kingsport campuses as well as online.

The MSN degree from King University prepares professional nurses for a specialty role in advanced nursing practice, leadership in the nursing profession, and future doctoral studies. Students learn the advanced theoretical knowledge and practice skills needed to function in increasingly complex care settings.

Nursing students will expand their critical thinking and reasoning skills, practice advanced nursing reflectively guided by theory and expanded knowledge, and interpret the role of the nurse as it affects health care and health policy.

Applications for the early decision deadline are due by Feb. 1, 2015; all other applications for the fall 2015 MSN programs are due no later than May 1, 2015.
