Full-time study is available for traditional (on-campus courses mixed with online courses) AG-CNS and FNP concentrations. Full-time study will also be available for the Nurse Executive and Nursing Education concentrations. Note that the full-time option is not currently available for the primarily online AG-CNS and FNP concentrations.
Time to completion for the full-time option is as follows:
- Nursing Education: 12 months
- Nurse Executive: 12 months
- AG-CNS and FNP (traditional): 24 months
Note: For students pursuing full-time study, we strongly advise not working full-time.
Part-time study is available for all concentrations and may be the best option for students who work full-time. Part-time students usually take one to two classes a semester and work with their academic advisor to plan the appropriate course sequence.
Typical time to completion for the part-time option with two classes a semester is as follows:
- Nursing Education: 24 months
- Nurse Executive: 22 months
- AG-CNS and FNP: 36 months
Students may proceed through their programs more slowly but must complete within 6 years from the term of admission.
Students may switch from full-time to part-time status and vice versa depending on space availability
