About the Program
Ohio University's Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), launched in 2005, offers four specialties: nurse educator, nurse administrator, family nurse practitioner and acute care nurse practitioner. Students can pursue more than one track, such as family nurse practitioner and nurse educator. The family nurse practitioner specialty is the most popular, and its graduates have achieved a 95 percent pass rate on the national certification exam.
Individuals have six years to complete the MSN, and this time limit begins on the date of registration in the first course. Graduate students must maintain at least a 3.00 grade-point average to remain in good standing. If grades drop below this level, the student must show improvement during the next academic period or face suspension.
