Master of Science in Nursing

Webster University's Master of Science in Nursing (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. You will have the opportunity to learn from nurses representing various backgrounds in the healthcare field who have a vested interest in your academic success. This integration of theory and real-world practice enhances the relevance and value of your overall learning experience. It also ensures that the kind of knowledge you acquire in class can be applied the next day at work.

Our MSN program is designed for working professionals, offering part-time study with evening courses at our St. Louis and Kansas City locations. Webster's MSN program offers two areas of focus: nurse educator (42 credits) or nurse leader (36 credits). Upon completion of the MSN program, the graduate will be able to:

  • Apply organizational and systems leadership skills to promote quality health care.
  • Apply quality and safety principles within an organization.
  • Analyze evidence and research for improvement of practice.
  • Evaluate information and health care technologies to coordinate care.
  • Apply knowledge of policy and advocacy strategies to influence health and health care.
  • Collaborate with other health professionals to coordinate care.
  • Apply prevention and population health concepts to implement culturally relevant care.
  • Integrate advanced knowledge and skills in a practice role.

Webster's nursing programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
