Master of Science in Nursing

Ohio University’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program is a comprehensive and focused program designed for active registered nurses who’ve earned their BSN and want to advance their education while having the flexibility of online courses. Whether you’re interested in becoming a nurse educator, nurse leader, or nurse practitioner, the MSN program has a track that’s right for you.

All MSN course work is offered in an online format with opportunities for hands-on learning experiences. Opportunities to interact with faculty and fellow students are offered in both synchronous and asynchronous platforms.

MSN Tracks:


The baccalaureate degree program in nursing, master's degree program in nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice program and post-graduate APRN certificate programs at Ohio University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

It is highly recommended that students who seek admission to these programs at Ohio University contact their home state’s Board of Nursing to verify that the desired program and its graduates will meet the eligibility criteria for approval for those credentials.
