Master of Science in Nursing

"Expect Great Things from God; Attempt Great Things for God"

Thank you for your interest in the Joseph and Nancy Fail School of Nursing at William Carey University. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program was developed on the faculty’s belief that graduate education advances professional nursing practice and healthcare delivery by building on the existing foundation of baccalaureate nursing education. The mission of the School of Nursing is to prepare professional nurses for entry-level education positions in either academic or healthcare institutional settings.

The degree is offered on both the Hattiesburg and Tradition Campuses. The Fall Admission is on the Hattiesburg campus, and a Spring Admission is offered on the Tradition Campus.  Hattiesburg classes are held in the master’s wing of the Fail-Asbury Building. Tradition classes are held at the new Tradition campus located on Highway 67 in Harrison County.

The MSN program offered at William Carey University fits the lifestyle of busy nurses. Graduate study may be done on either a full-time or part-time basis. A schedule can be tailored to meet both the curriculum and the student’s needs. The minimum course load for full-time status as a graduate student is six semester hours during a trimester. A student must complete all required work within a period of six years after enrolling in the graduate program.

The Joseph and Nancy Fail School of Nursing also offers two post-master’s programs. The post-master’s program in nursing education program  was developed for the MSN prepared nurse who wishes to pursue further education in the role of the nurse in an academic setting. This program will facilitate preparation for the nurse graduate to sit for the Certified Nurse Educator Exam upon meeting the educational practice requirement. The post-master’s in healthcare simulation education program was developed for individuals with a master’s degree in a health related field to teach healthcare simulation or run a simulation lab.
