Master of Science in Nursing

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program is designed for working professionals. Webster University's part-time, MSN program provides the advanced theory, skills, and nursing knowledge you need to grow in your current position or to embark on a new career in the dynamic field of nursing.
