Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Degree Program
Creighton University College of Nursing offers a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree with a major in nursing dedicated to preparing nurses with advanced knowledge and skills to respond to challenges in the health care system and assume leadership in managing quality, cost-effective care.

Post-Baccalaureate to Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program
Creighton University College of Nursing is the first in the state to offer the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree, the highest level of preparation for clinical practice.  Noted for innovative programs that keep pace with the ever-changing field of nursing, Creighton has earned a national reputation for providing excellence in nursing education and commitment to service.  With less than 100 nursing schools offering the DNP degree, Creighton is among the universities setting the standard.  The DNP is designed for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice, and offers an alternative to research-focused doctoral programs.  The DNP is a professional doctorate, such as a doctor of pharmacy, doctor of physical therapy or doctor of medicine.

Post-Master's to Doctor of Nursing Practice (PM-DNP) Program
Advanced practice nurses practicing in today's healthcare environment require complex clinical skills and sophisticated knowledge of the evidence-base for practice.  Graduates of the DNP will be able to affect the healthcare delivery system by evaluating the evidence base for nursing practice, becoming leaders in the clinical arenas establishing standards and policies, and meeting the needs of today's diverse healthcare systems.

Post-Master's Certificate Program
Post-master's certificates are designed for nurses who already hold their MSN and want to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in their field.  Professional certification also adds to your nursing credentials and can help you advance to higher-level job positions.
