    Greetings from the Graduate Programs in Nursing

    Our graduate program the Master of Science in Nursing, is designed not only to further your professional development as a nurse but also your personal growth to provide you with the emotional skills to fully contribute to our community. All of us are cognizant of the complexities that our patients, families and friends encounter on a daily basis. As a registered nurse, we are quite often the first person to whom others seek assistance. Your decision to pursue graduate nursing studies is demonstration of your conviction to perform at the highest level. At Mount Saint Mary’s University, we value the rigor and excitement of nursing research done together as a community of learners and we respect the dignity and value of the individual thus the emphasis on refining one’s emotional intelligence. A graduate nursing degree strengthens our ability to work with others and accept differences for this is absolutely essential as we dialogue and learn from one another.
