Throughout the nursing industry, there is an overall focus towards advanced education. The baseline educational requirements are changing, and nurses are finding that in order to stay competitive, they now need to achieve at least a master’s level education (MSN/MBA) to advance their careers.

Maryville University has taken an innovative approach to advanced nursing education by providing four competitive online degree programs for students wanting to move forward in their nursing careers. Students have the option of pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing to Doctor of Nursing Practice (BSN to DNP) or Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), both with four specialty tracks – the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGPCNP), the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP), the Pediatric (Primary Care) Nurse Practitioner (PNP) and the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).  Additionally, Maryville University also offers Post-Master Nurse Practitioner Certificates in the AGPCNP, AGACNP, PNP and FNP tracks, as well as the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) for those current nurse practitioners wanting an even more advanced education degree. Maryville University’s online degree offerings help support nurses with the education needed to empower them within the healthcare field.
