Master of Science in Nursing

The online Master of Science degree in nursing is offered through the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing. It provides a concentration for the Nurse Educator. Full-time students can complete the program in four semesters including one summer. Completion time for part-time students varies but students must complete their degrees within six consecutive calendar years from the first semester of enrollment in the program.

We will no longer accept students into the Clinical Nurse Specialist concentration at the master's degree level. Students interested in the Clinical Nurse Specialist are referred to the Doctor of Nursing Program.

The master’s degree program at the University of Arkansas is accredited by the:

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
