The Eleanor Mann School of Nursing


The Eleanor Mann School of Nursing offers both undergraduate and graduate nursing programs. By the time nursing students graduate, many have received three or four job offers. One hundred percent of Eleanor Mann School of Nursing graduates have found meaningful employment a year after graduation.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) provides students with extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in a wide variety of settings, offers small clinical class sizes, low faculty-student ratios and tremendous one-on-one support from professors. The program emphasizes nurses' varied roles as caregivers, managers, teachers and researchers, and it prepares graduates to practice in the complex, highly sophisticated and exciting world of health care and provides a solid foundation for success in graduate schools and specialty certification.

The online RN to B.S.N. (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program offers a research base for nursing practice that promotes the ability of the nurse to effect change needed to improve health. In the study of professional nursing, the student builds on a planned general education for the academic disciplines and acquires theoretical and specific knowledge to meet health care needs. In addition, the curriculum provides opportunity for students with technical nursing education to expand their knowledge and scope of practice. The baccalaureate program establishes a foundation for graduate education in nursing and for continued personal and professional development.

The online Master of Science degree in Nursing (M.S.N.) offers two concentrations. The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) concentration prepares graduates to serve as clinical nurse specialists for adults with medical/surgical health problems. The Nurse Educator (NE) concentration prepares graduates to assume teaching roles to prepare the next generation of nurses.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.), which will be offered starting in fall 2013, is a practice-focused doctorate for those nurses who desire a terminal degree with a clinical focus. The D.N.P. prepares advance practice nurses to function as experts and leaders in increasingly complex health-care settings. There are two levels of entry for the practice doctorate: post-B.S.N. and post-M.S.N.
