School Nursing Frequently Asked Questions

I have my preliminary School Nurse Servcies Credential (SNSC). Am I eligible for the MSN School Nursing program?

No. If you have your preliminary SNS Credential, you will want to apply for our School Nurse Services Credential (SNSC) programOpens in new window first. You are only eligible to apply to the MSN School Nursing program if you have your clear SNS Credential.

Can I earn the SNS Credential and the MSN with a School Nursing concentration together?

Yes! The first step is completing the credential portion of the program. Once enrolled in the credential program, you will be given the opportunity to add the MSN and if you choose to do so, you will be able to continue straight into the MSN upon completion of the credential coursework.

Is this an online program?

Yes! The MSN School Nurse program is completely online.

Can I work at my own pace through the course?

No. Online coursework through the School of Nursing is structured similarly to face to face classes in that you will have assignments to complete based on a set schedule with definite due dates. Students do not work through courses at their own pace but rather stay on track together to foster collaborative discussion with classmates and instructors throughout the whole semester.
