Computer expertise is required for Nursing Administration students before their first clinical course.
The required essay can be added at the end of the online application.

For most of our programs, some core classes are primarily online, meeting on campus about 2-4 times per semester. Some are offered every week or every other week. Major-area classes generally are face-to-face; some sections meet every week or every other week. The MSN Administration Program also offers an entirely online option.
No. Some classes are in the evening. Some are all-day classes that meet every other week. Check our current class schedule online for meeting dates and times.
A minimum of 500 clinical hours is required.
We have identified clinical sites for all MSN clinical courses. NP students are encouraged to share possible clinical sites with the MSN clinical coordinator for clinical site approval.
If you want to work with a particular preceptor outside the DFW area, the preceptor will need to complete a “preceptor application” which would be reviewed by the Clinical Coordinator and course faculty for approval. (The MSN Clinical Coordinator works with students to coordinate the first 2-3 clinical preceptors during their coursework.)
Clinical experiences cannot be done completely in the current job setting and will need to be approved by the course faculty. Evening and weekend rotations generally are not available since most preceptors in the program work during the day Monday-Friday.
A Master’s of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree is normally acquired after a student receives a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree. A Post-MSN Certificate student must already have received an MSN from an accredited school. Please make an appointment with a Graduate Advisor to review your MSN transcript and determine the required coursework for a Post-MSN Certificate.
NP Graduates will apply to the Texas Board of Nursing For Advanced Practice for recognition after completion of the program requirements. The MSN Program will assist you with this process. NP Graduates also are required to take a national certification examination in their specialty area of practice. This examination is required for advanced nursing practice for the State of Texas.
