Graduate

Salem State's School of Nursing offers several graduate programs.

Master of Science in Nursing

For current registered nurses with a bachelor's degree, the master's of science in nursing (MSN) offers study in current and developing theory, preparation for leadership roles in nursing, a foundation for doctoral studies, and more.

Direct Entry MSN

For career changers with a bachelor's degree in an unrelated field, the direct entry MSN immerses you in an intensive, accelerated and full-time program. Successful completion of this 15-month program enables you to sit for the RN licensing exam. Once licensed, you can work as a nurse while pursuing your graduate degree.  

Graduate Certificate in Nursing Education

The graduate certificate in nursing education consists of four courses, all offered for academic credit. Applicants must have a minimum of a master's degree in nursing to enter the program.
