M.S. in Nursing (MSN)
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program provides innovative educational opportunities for working nursing professionals who wish to advance their career as an educator (15 credits) or a leader (15 credits). Stritch students have access to faculty who are flexible and always willing to help students thrive in and out of the classroom.
The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program prepares nurses for leadership roles in education and healthcare. Graduates may elect to work in academic, community or service settings.
A shortage of nurses means that MSNs have many career paths to choose from, in both clinical and nonclinical fields.
Over $1 million of $5 million Nurse Educator Program funds have been awarded
The Wisconsin Nurse Educator Program, created to support the education of nurses in Wisconsin, has proven to be extremely popular, according to Linda K. Young, Chair of the ANEW Implementation Council for the Nurse Educator Program. “Thus far, there have been 26 applications and 26 confirmed awardees,” said Young. “We have already awarded over $1 million in the first month of this initiative. Two schools have already filled their number of allocated awardees. Things are rolling along,” she said.
Applications by nursing students admitted to approved programs are still being accepted. Information on how to apply can be found on the project website (Wisconsin Nurse Educator Program | A Program to Support the Education of Wisconsin Nurses).
Ph.D. students are eligible for $50,000, DNP students $40,000 and MSN NE students $30,000. The awards are discrete amounts, not variable. Funds may be used to cover the cost of tuition as well as expenses related to school such as books, travel, childcare, etc. Students must maintain full-time enrollment and must commit to teaching at an approved Wisconsin-based school for at least three years post-graduation.
The funds are distributed through the Wisconsin Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB). Applications will be reviewed and approved on a first-come, first-served basis, and applications will be received until all funds are distributed. Funds will be dispersed in the fall and spring semesters of the 2022-23 academic year. Applicants are responsible for budgeting use of funds to extend throughout the program of study.
