In response to the latest COVID-19 surge, spring semester classes will take place remotely through at least January 30, 2022.

The master of science in nursing (MSN) program is for the registered nurse with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, or a bachelor’s degree in another field and an associate degree in nursing or a diploma in nursing. Salem State University offers an MSN and an opportunity to specialize in an adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner program. In addition, there is an opportunity for the post-master's certificate in nursing education. Completion of the post-master's certificate also allows for certification as a nurse educator.

The MSN program is designed for working professionals with classes that are offered in the evening and in a hybrid format.

Students who successfully complete the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner program track are eligible to take the national Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam in Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nursing.
