Career Changers Welcome!

The Master's Entry into Professional Nursing (MEPN) program is a two-year program that prepares students with a bachelor’s degree in any area outside of nursing to become entry-level professional nurses. MEPN students earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Nursing degrees. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for registered nursing licensure. The MEPN program is ideal for career-changers seeking an exciting new start in the health care profession.

Preparing Future Nurse Leaders

We know that higher levels of education are associated with better patient outcomes. MEPN students receive additional education specific to have greater training in evidence-based practice and leadership. Both of these areas are essential for nurses practicing in today’s changing healthcare environments. The graduate-level of education offered through this program can provide our nursing alumni more opportunities to move into leadership positions in various healthcare settings on their units.
