This program combines the Master of Arts in Bioethics with the Master of Science in Nursing, in cooperation with the School of Nursing. The program provides excellent preparation for advanced practice nurses to gain knowledge about the principles and problem resolution techniques that are foundational to bioethics. The combined M.A./M.S.N. program will enable students to obtain graduate preparation in both fields, contributing to the integration of ethics in advanced practice nursing and thereby increasing the availability of ethics expertise to the nursing community.
Students must apply and be accepted to each program to qualify. Students may take courses required for each program concurrently or may complete the requirements for one program prior to beginning the requirements for another. The Department of Bioethics accepts 6 credits of required elective nursing school courses toward the M.A. elective requirement. The nursing school accepts 5 credits of the required Foundations in Bioethics I course towards the M.S.N. degree requirement.
