Baker College adds master’s in nursing to fall roster

MUSKEGON —  Baker College will offer a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) online beginning fall quarter. Registration is now open for classes that begin  Sept. 24.

The Baker College MSN is an advanced-level, postgraduate degree that provides education for registered nurses who wish to be employed as nurse educators, nurse administrators, nurse managers and health policy experts. The program includes practice hours performed in the student’s community.

“Graduates of Baker College’s new MSN degree will be prepared for positions in nursing administration and nursing education,” said Lesley Morgan, Ph.D., ARNP, dean of Baker College’s School of Nursing. “This program will help meet the needs of administrators at our partner hospitals who are telling us that they would like more registered nurses to be academically qualified for leadership roles.

“The flexibility of this online master’s program is ideal for working nurses. No matter where they are located, students can log in online, when convenient for them, to pursue the next step in their education.”

At the undergraduate level, Baker College offers a post-licensure BSN through its online campus. Other undergraduate nursing programs – pre-licensure BSN, Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and Practical Nurse (PN) certificate – are available at select Baker College campuses across Michigan.
